New York City Adopts ‘Culturally Responsive’ Education in Schools: Wall Street Journal Article

https://www.wsj.com/articles/new-york-city-set-to-adopt-culturally-responsive-education-in-schools-11564606684


"A report from the NYC Coalition for Educational Justice, which advocates for culturally responsive education, found that while 67% of the city’s public-school students are black or Latino, about 84% of authors of commonly used books in elementary schools are white.

Robert Osborne, parent from Manhattan at the meeting, said his son is mixed-race and it was “important for him to read books about people who look and sound like him. To not hear that means he only hears from the dominant culture.”
