Dorothy Steele and Becki Cohn-Vargas discuss the negative effects of trying to be "colorblind," and how a multicultural education should be taught in schools that have a high population of students of color and low-income students.
Steele and Cohn-Vargas are the authors of the recently published book, Identity Safe Classrooms: Places to Belong and Learn.
This interview followed the SCOPE Brown Bag lecture "Identity Safe Classrooms: Places to Belong and Learn" on April 14, 2014. The full webcast of the seminar and other details can be found at this link: https://edpolicy.stanford.edu/events/...
