School of Education Sparks Conversation Regarding Cultural Bias
K-12 educators from the region and USD faculty recently took part in a campus workshop on culturally responsive teaching. The USD School of Education hosted internationally acclaimed author and scholar Geneva Gay, Ph.D., to lead the conversations that focused on using culture to meet the needs of a diverse student population.
The South Dakota Legislature earlier this year rejected a bill that would require public schools to teach students about the state’s tribal history, culture and government.
Prior to Gay’s arrival, South Dakota Public Broadcasting’s “Dakota Midday” interviewed Donald Easton-Brooks, Ph.D., dean of the USD School of Education, about the need for better multicultural education. Listen to that interview here.
Gay also sat down with Easton-Brooks for a question-and-answer session on the subject. Watch that interview here.
