Tell LAUSD: We Need a Culturally-Relevant, Anti-Racist Education Rubric

Dear LAUSD Leadership,

It's time to act to ensure that the curriculum is culturally relevant!

The district is making progress in creating an education system that is culturally affirming, actively anti-racist, and bias-aware, but we need to accelerate its efforts. Part of the answer is to have the LAUSD School Board institute a rubric to rate the cultural relevancy of any curriculum being considered in LAUSD. 

There’s no time to waste in our effort to establish a curriculum that is inclusive, anti-racist, LGBTQIA+ affirming and ensure that our teaching practices are grounded in what works best for students.
