Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) at Schoolhouse

DEIB in Action for Adult Community 



Curriculum for the students is strongest when the adult community takes part in educational experiences that complement the student program. These experiences help them engage in the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, learning alongside the students, as they realize the potential to become a truly just society for all. Below is a list of resources that reflect some of the DEI education to date.

In the words of theologian Richard Shaull, from his foreword to Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, There is no such thing as a ​neutral ​educational process. Education either functions as an instrument that is used to facilitate the integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity to it, or it becomes the ‘practice of freedom,’the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.
