The events of the past month have spurred us to deeply consider how we — an organization committed to serving educators and students — can do our part and do it better than we have in the past.
One pillar of Collaborative Classroom’s mission is supporting instructional equity: ensuring that all students, especially the most underserved, receive the most effective teaching that enables them to develop the cognitive behaviors needed to do deep and meaningful work as independent learners. We believe that instructional equity is an important part of dismantling structural racism and oppression and ensuring that all students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Zaretta Hammond, Collaborative Classroom board member, educator, and best-selling author of Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain, is someone we learn from, who pushes us to do better in our work on instructional equity. We invite you to read a recent interview with Ms. Hammond, in which she discusses “inequity by design” in schools and explores what instructional equity looks like in the classroom.
