To quote NEA President Lily Eskelsen-Garcia. “We must examine how white supremacy culture impacts our biases, our practices and the policies in our own schools and communities”. It is our responsibility as educators to create the space for students to explore, by first evaluating our own biases, privilege and collusion”.

NEA is committed to working with educators towards eradicating structural and institutional racism in our education systems; which keep students from attaining the best public education possible. The following resources provided by Colorin Colorado can help promote deeper understanding around the issues of racism and violence with colleagues, students and families.
