"At the root of it, our identity and social justice curriculum is about humanity,” said Vasa. “We believe that schools are spaces that can foster empathy building around all human experiences, empowering young children to seek justice so all people can be their complete and authentic selves.”

Early education leader Corlears School announced today it is holding next week a free, online event to help parents understand its identity and social justice curriculum designed to support anti-racism as a core value of the school.

“Identity & Social Justice in the Elementary Years” will be held Thursday, May 13, 12:30-1:30pm ET. It is designed for current and prospective parents of children aged 1-10.

The Zoom event will be led by Corlears’ Mansi Vasa, Director of Equity, Inclusion and Community Life. She will be in conversation with Dora Rice, 3rd-5th grade teacher at Corlears. They will unpack how Corlears’ identity and social justice curriculum unfolds across the ages from Kindergarten through 5th grade. Participants will walk away with an understanding of how the social justice themes of identity, diversity, justice, and action are a significant piece of the educational experience at Corlears, and how Corlears’ curriculum overview has been developed to match the developmental readiness of students at each age level.

"At the root of it, our identity and social justice curriculum is about humanity,” said Vasa. “We believe that schools are spaces that can foster empathy building around all human experiences, empowering young children to seek justice so all people can be their complete and authentic selves.”
