In the 21st century, societies that are the most heterogeneous also have the highest incarceration rates, levels of violence, and degrees of social conflict. If pluralist societies can be both economically vibrant and peaceful, it's going to be educators in countries like the United States who figure out how to make it work. This workshop may be uncomfortable, as it will invite participants to engage in thinking and conversation about issues that often divide us around culture, identity, and prejudice. Participants will leave with ideas for how to facilitate difficult conversations among staff and develop curricula for students aligned with the CES Common Principles that honor the diverse cultural makeup of our communities in pursuit of bringing out each student's full potential.

Let's talk about big and little ways of disrupting harmful culturally normative approaches to schooling, being, and knowing to make way for a type of justice in public education that would breathe life into a future worthy of the human spirit.
