We, at Corwin, believe that the conditions leading up to this insurrection have been long in the making. Moreover, we believe that the greatest promise for preserving our great democracy and promoting justice for marginalized Americans rests in the hands of our brave public school educators.
Rather than attempting to conceal, distort, or whitewash this terrible moment in our history, we wish to offer a counterproposal: Process it with your students. Recognizing that many of us were never adequately prepared to enter into such conversations, our hope is that this resource center will guide you and your students along the pathway to greater understanding, moral clarity, and social justice.
If not now, then when?
