Culturally Responsive Education

Culturally responsive education (CRE) is an approach to schooling that promotes student engagement, learning, and achievement by centering their knowledge, cultural backgrounds, and everyday experiences in the classroom. Students who experience CRE engage with academic content in ways that are personally meaningful, build purpose, counter stereotypes, and develop their ability to connect across lines of difference. Other common frameworks that describe this education philosophy include culturally relevant pedagogy, culturally responsive teaching, and culturally sustaining pedagogy.
