New Racial Justice in Urban Schooling minor seeks to improve educational equity

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is thrilled to launch the Racial Justice in Urban Schooling undergraduate minor, a program that examines the intersections of race, social class, language status, gender, or sexual orientation, and how those impact educational equity and social justice.

The program supports undergraduates from any major to explore their interest in graduate studies in education or activism on educational issues. The minor is designed for students who are deeply interested in education as a social issue, whether or not they want to become a classroom teacher.

Participants will learn to recognize educational practices that marginalize students who are diverse in terms of their race, class, language or gender status, and learn how to support educational equity through alternative approaches. Students will reimagine teaching materials and techniques that hold the possibility for a more equitable and just society.
