Research shows that children not only recognize race from a very young age, but also develop racial biases by ages 3 to 5. One focus of Landmark’s DEI mission is to train our teachers to have more of these discussions in class, but we also know that students learn so much from their parents. Therefore, we want to provide you with some suggestions for continuing these necessary conversations at home. Come join the discussion, share your experiences, and ask questions!
On March 22 you will receive a Zoom link to the Landmark Learns workshop.
