Kojo: Is Diversity In Montgomery County Schools Distracting? Wed. Feb. 15th at 12:30 PM

Montgomery County Public Schools has long invested in “cultural competency” training, which encourages educators to take students’ cultural backgrounds into account in the classroom. While some in the community think focusing on the county’s diversity aids learning, others question the need for highlighting student differences. We discuss the role of race and culture in education, and what approach makes sense for our current political climate.
