Here’s what Alison Collins said to the the SF Chronicle about the ways SFUSD is incorporating more inclusive curriculum :
“Recently, the San Francisco Board of Education approved an equity resolution that established a committee focused on creating inclusive curriculum. This could include lessons about black American mathematicians and women in computer science — or about the newest use of a very old part of speech.
“That’s super exciting,” says Alison Collins, a member of the San Francisco Board of Education and former English teacher. “It makes grammar interesting, even for kids who don’t identify as nonbinary. And it allows kids to think about language in a new way.””
