NEW YORK CITY(TIP):
 The city will spend $23 million for anti-bias training of city 
educators after the Daily News exposed shocking instances of racism in public schools.

 In
 February, The News uncovered allegations of a white Bronx teacher who 
stepped on a black student during a lesson on slavery, a Bronx principal
 who barred black history lessons and a Park Slope PTA group that used 
blackface imagery in gala invites.

 

The
 stories fueled demonstrations across the city from activists who had 
pushed for anti-bias training for months without response from the city.

 

Now the 2019 city budget unveiled by Mayor de Blasio includes millions in funding for the training and a plan to offer anti-bias training to all city educators by 2021.

 

Chancellor Richard Carranza lauded the cultural sensitivity training for city educators.

 

“This
 is a real step forward for serving New York City’s kids and families,” 
Carranza said. “Culturally responsive teaching meets our kids and 
families where they are, and tailors the way we teach and serve our kids
 to their unique backgrounds and the experiences they bring into the 
classroom.”

 

The
 city will spend $4.8 million on implicit bias- and culturally 
responsive practice training in fiscal year 2019, which begins July 1. 
That’s up from just $660,000 on the programs in fiscal year 2018.

 

The
 budget for the programs also includes $6.9 million for the programs in 
2020, $6.2 million for 2021 and $5.5 million for 2022.

 

NYC
 Coalition for Educational Justice Coordinator Natasha Capers, who 
organized many of the rallies calling for anti-bias training, said 
thousands of parents have worked hard to bring racial justice to city 
classrooms.




   




 

“We
 look forward to working with Chancellor Carranza and NYC educators to 
fulfill the promise of this initiative and begin the important work of 
diversifying curriculum and course offerings as well,” Capers said.
