In reporting from Khapo Community School on Santa Clara Pueblo as part of our Solutions Journalism Network collaboration, Ellen Berkovitch spoke with teachers, administrators and students. She also reached out to a national education leader at the University of Minnesota, James Bequette, whose field is what is called “culturally responsive education.” It marks an effort to discover how teachers who tend to be white women can be responsive to multicultural classrooms. And how speaking to those students in ways that privilege their cultural understandings can help keep those kids in school.
