The Need for an Anti-Bias Curriculum

Preparing students to live and work successfully in a pluralistic nation and a global community requires opportunities for them to engage in curricular content that furthers the ideals of justice and equality upon which the nation was founded. Anti-bias curriculum provides an understanding of diverse perspectives, strengthens critical thinking skills, challenges the development of emerging biases, and builds skills and motivation to take action against injustice.

Additionally, creating an anti-bias learning environment fosters a positive and open mindset to engage in and learn from curricular content that promotes equality and diversity nationwide.
