Training Overview

Anti-Racism In and Out Of The Classroom: How to Be an Ally For K-12 Students

Recent news has been rife with topics related to racism. Meghan Markle’s comments regarding her in-laws’ concerns about her children’s complexions, the reinstated third-degree murder charge against Derek Chauvin in George Floyd’s death, and the firing of Georgetown law professor Sandra Sellers over racist remarks represent the reckoning that overt and covert racists are facing today.

Despite the awakening of society, students across America continue to experience discrimination. From blatant actions to unintentional assumptions, racism plagues students daily. It degrades their confidence, steals opportunities for future success, and perpetuates stereotypes.

Educators and administrators have unique abilities to combat systemic racism, honor all perspectives, and support students. You can do far more than merely avoid violating Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. You have the power to enable minority students to be seen, heard, respected, and celebrated by your entire school community and ultimately by the greater world around them.
