Henrico County Public Schools has asked faculty and staff to form “equity teams” to assess their “privilege” and learn more about “whiteness.” The district published a 20-page, “Equity Team Guidance Document” which includes the following reference from EdChange:
The linked site includes y references to “Case Studies on Diversity and Social Justice Education” and various other equity curricula:
The district’s equity information page lists three race-based affinity group meetings that took place during the summer and link to a PowerPoint that explicitly states that white people need to learn about their privilege.
The affinity group meetings were:
- “Black Staff Affinity Group” for the “Black staff member”;
- “Teacher of Color Affinity Group” for “staff members of color”; and
- “Allyship Affinity Group” to “recognize and process the impact of privilege on white educators.”
