Last Saturday, our local school and district partners joined Harvard students in RIDES courses for our annual Pathways to Equity conference, where we reflect on our work over the past school year. Educators and students shared their challenges and successes as they pursue true integration, as well as steps they're excited to take next year.
Here is just an abbreviated list of what our partners accomplished this year:
A team from Bowman Elementary continued work on a schoolwide Dismantling Racism curriculum.
Cambridge Rindge & Latin High School worked to detrack its first year English courses through a "leveling up" program, in which the expectations for all students are raised.
Cambridge Street Upper School worked to detrack its math classes.
Fletcher Maynard Academy, also in Cambridge, created a pilot curriculum about race and equity for its youngest learners, in pre-K and Kindergarden.
