Voices in Urban Education: Research Alliance Team Reflects on the Potential of CR-SE in Computer Science Education


"As schools and districts across the country expand their CS offerings, we have the opportunity to infuse culturally responsive practices in all aspects of this work— from professional development for teachers to classroom activities and assessments for students." The Potential of CR-SE for K-12 Computer Science Education 

Deputy Director Cheri Fancsali, Research Associate Kathryn Hill, and former Research Associate Zitsi Mirakhur are featured in the 50th Volume of Voices in Urban Education (VUE). Their interview with Ron Summers and Christy Crawford, leaders in New York City’s CS4All initiative, examines the close connection between equity and computer science (CS), and Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education (CR-SE). Their conversation provides insights into how initiative leaders understand and are enacting CR-SE practices as they work to bring computer science education to the City's 1.1 million students.
