Diverse schools are taking a new approach to anti-racism: Training white parents

April 12, 2022

"Lessons in cultural humility... have been a feature of teachers' professional development for quite some time. But trainings have largely focused on how students are treated, not families, and they've been targeted at school officials, not parent and caregiver volunteers.

That's changing, especially in neighborhoods experiencing gentrification and in predominantly white areas grappling with issues of race and class. In Missouri, New York City, Virginia and other places across the country, school communities are tackling the work of facilitating connection across racial and socioeconomic lines, often starting with white people, through trainings led by people of color."

Christina Feliciana and Robert Watts III are quoted in this article about efforts by schools to riase antiracist awareness among parents.
