Make Your Classroom a Catalyst for Social Justice

Creating a classroom environment that represents diverse perspectives of students, produces culturally competent and global citizens, and celebrates diversity is a commitment to greater social change. Schools need ethnic studies educators who can apply a critical lens to teaching about race, ethnicity, class, gender, and sexual orientation in American society in order for students of color to understand their history and realize their potential. Choosing the path that provides you with the right foundation for building community within your classroom is key to becoming that champion for equity and social change.
