What does ‘colonizing’ mean in the context of a global majority school, and how can we be thoughtful about not centering whiteness? We talk to Kelly from NYC about some of the things we might think of as right, just because they are white.
In this episode we're joined by Kelly from NYC to talk about how we as white &/or privileged families show up in integrating schools. What does ‘colonizing’ mean in this context and, most importantly, how can we be thoughtful about not centering whiteness? We dig in to some of the ways integration can go sideways because of how integrating parents see things as “right” when they are often just “white” (&/or privileged). And we talk, of course, about nachos.
