Now more than ever, we need more — not less — authentic racial and ethnic representation in our school texts. To push back against this growing censorship movement, Ed Trust is hosting a conversation, Why We Need More (Not Less) Complex Racial and Ethnic Representation in Grade School Books, to discuss the challenges of the current educational landscape, key findings from our study, The Search for More Complex Racial and Ethnic Representation in Grade School Books, and takeaways that help move curricula development toward representational balance.
