Bias Ed

The Bias Ed project, currently under development, seeks to inspire parents, teachers, and school leaders to disrupt racism, sexism, xenophobia, and other pernicious and harmful biases in early childhood education and curriculums. IARA’s research will elucidate the most effective, safe, and productive approaches to inoculate children against longstanding and enduring social viruses in the classroom, similar to sex ed peer programs that empower youth and K-12 efforts to encourage civic engagement. Please check back here for more information as we build this project.
