New section of N.J. DOE site has supports for more diverse, inclusive learning environments

The New Jersey Department of Education’s website now has an area called Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Educational Resources to assist school districts with incorporating those three areas into their curriculums.

“Our goal is to provide tools that educators can use to develop curriculum that highlights the contributions and experiences of individuals with diverse abilities, cultures, identities and perspectives,” said Dr. Angelica Allen-McMillan, New Jersey’s acting education commissioner. “These resources demonstrate our commitment to ensuring that we provide all children with a safe and welcoming learning environment.”

These resources can also be used by local school officials to facilitate professional learning and to engage community stakeholders, per a Jan. 12 release.
