Ethnic Studies In Seattle: A Look Inside The Classrooms Of Antiracist Educators

The Seattle Public Schools recently wrote the below article about the powerful pedagogy of local educators who are piloting a new Ethnic Studies program.  The Ethnic Studies initiative in the Seattle Public Schools is the result of an on going movement that was birthed from the Black Lives Matter At School action last school year.  Building on that action, the Seattle NAACP teamed up with teachers, parents and students to lead a campaign to integrate Ethnic Studies across the school district. The below article highlights the work of several educators in Seattle including Tracy Gill, one of the lead organizers of the movement for Ethnic Studies, and Donte Felder,  head teacher at Orca K-8, who are piloting the new program. My classroom is also featured, the first standalone Ethnic Studies class in the Seattle Public Schools.
