Goshen Friends School has a multi-faceted approach toward growing diversity awareness in our community through a culturally competent curriculum and professional development for staff. Our efforts are led by teachers themselves as well as by our Head of School, who has received informal training with a National SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) Project trainer. This training provided a connection to current research on diversity, in addition to the tools and language that are crucial for having conversations around diversity and social justice.
Goshen Friends is also a member of the Greater Philadelphia Diversity Collaborative, a group of nine small schools that are committed to discussions on difference, social justice, and equity in and around the classroom.
