The philsophy of teaching equity and social justice to young children has existed for a very long time. I began presenting professional development using the Starting Small equity and justice materials in the late 90’s to preschool programs. These are topics that are always needed. Today probably more so than back then. So we are taking a few steps back to take many steps forward.
I’m using the same tried and true materials developed by the Southern Poverty Law Center. They’ve now been adapted for primary educators acknowledging current events and needs. This retooling will provide teachers with powerful tools that can easily and immediately be implemented in any classroom.
