Training Overview

The best ways to support Black and Brown students. Learn how to support your students.

As the new school year gets underway, it’s an ideal time to consider how your Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) students may have struggled during past school years. You can make 2022–23 different by taking specific steps now to support them more.

All educators can be advocates, even those without first-hand experience facing unfair challenges related to race and ethnicity. Advocacy requires humility, patience, decentering, and work. During this school year, you must actively develop the qualities, talents, and opportunities of Black and Brown students.
