By the year 2040, one in three students in the United States will be an immigrant or will be the child of an immigrant.

“Our schools continue to grow in populations of students who bring cultural, ethnic and linguistic diversity to our communities,” said NYSUT Executive Vice President Jolene DiBrango.

“Culturally responsive teaching is an approach that should be infused into everyday teaching.”

"Culturally Responsive Teaching: Celebrating Diversity in our Schools" is the theme for Volume XII of NYSUT’s journal of best practices in education, Educator’s Voice, set to be published this fall.

Articles will include a unique unit that posits students,including English language learners, as ethnographers.

Another article focuses on building culturally responsive learning communities through civic and political engagement.
