Culturally Responsive Education

“The classroom should be an entrance into the world, not an escape from it.”
- John Ciardi

Culturally Responsive Education (CRE) connects curriculum and teaching to students’ experiences, perspectives, histories & cultures. It advances students’ academic achievement and sense of themselves as agents for change; and it helps students sustain their connection to their own language, culture, and identity while also developing skills to succeed in the dominant culture.
