As the 2020-21 school year emerges, educators are redefining safety and learning in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, suffocating systemic racism, inequitable technological divide, and crippling funding.
Although not all students are in physical classrooms, the School-to-Prison-Pipeline continues to dictate the success and achievement of underrepresented youth. Through virtual learning, students - Black, brown, LGBTQ+, with disabilities - continue to experience criminalization, isolation, and lower performance expectations from decision-makers.
We believe that educators have the power to transform this narrative. In order to prioritize student and teacher power, we must equip leaders with tools and funds to engage in anti-bias, anti-racist (ABAR) pedagogy, trauma-informed healing, and ongoing support & accountability.
Donate today to help Transformative Teach assemble kits for PreK-12 educators who are committed to nurturing the growth of ALL students & eliminating and preventing oppressive classroom practices.
We aim to equip at least 10 educators with Transformative Teacher Kits for the 2020-21 school year.
THE TRANSFORMATIVE TEACHER KIT.
Each Transformative Teacher Kit includes:
for Virtual & In-Person Classroom Supplies
Each year, educators spend $500 - $1000 out-of-pocket for classroom supplies.
