To rid society of racism and the tremendous suffering, strife, and wasted potential it causes, it’s not enough to not be racist.
We need to be antiracist.
Being antiracist requires growing to recognize and equally value the dignity and humanity of every human being, but not just that.
It also means confronting racism and teaching those in our care to do the same.
Educators overwhelmingly want to be antiracist.
According to a survey conducted by EdWeek, 84% of teachers want to teach from an antiracist perspective.
