Big Bold Goal 1
Minnesota schools are culturally responsive in their policies and practicesThrough capacity-building and collaborations with education leaders, communities of color and Native American voices, families, and community members, we can work to develop race equity goals in education and promote policies and responsiveness that support them.
We envision a just society in which an equitable educational ecosystem ensures all students achieve their full potential.
The need for culturally responsive classrooms and leadership
Minnesota continues to have one of the largest academic gaps in the country in reading and math achievement between white students and students of color, and one of the worst records in the nation for discipline disparities. Race Equity Action Plans are designed to address specific systemic inequalities that serve as barriers to education equity for children of color and American Indian children.
