Join the public Waldorf community for an evening with Professor Emerita Dr. Christine Sleeter as we explore multicultural education in today’s school system. Discussions include a history of multicultural education, exploring curriculum as mirror’s into someone else’s world, and what teaching about racism in an age-appropriate way looks like.
