The Black Education Research Center at Teachers College (BERC) has received a $3.25 million grant from the @nyccouncil to develop an interdisciplinary K-12 Black studies curriculum for the city’s public schools. The grant follows BERC’s recent research report, led by its Director and TC Professor of Education Leadership Sonya Douglass Horsford, which was the first-of-its-kind to measure the impact of the pandemic and systemic racism on Black students. “We look forward to bridging research and practice through collaboration with the New York Department of Education and community partners to develop an interdisciplinary Black studies curriculum that will improve the quality of education provided to all students,” Horsford said. 👉Learn more about the initiative at our link-in-bio.
