Who we serve
Our mission is to provide students with culturally relevant and responsive education and materials. Historically, African-Americans have struggled for educational equality and equity in the United States which includes being forced to attend segregated, underfunded, and overcrowded public schools.
For many African-Americans, academic failure and literacy are often associated with lower socioeconomic status and social issues such as welfare dependency and incarceration. Teaching it Trill strives to create Culturally Relevant curriculum and professional developments in order to have a impact on the education experience of black and brown students across America.
At Teaching it Trill, we believe:
That all students have the right to a high quality and equitable education.
That the role of race and racism is a factor in the Education system and most be eradicated.
The all Educators must be Activists.
