Talking About Race: Resources for Families and Educators

For the Norwood Public Schools, our diversity is our strength.  Our differences are what bring us together.  As educators, we are continuously learning and engaging in conversations around diversity, equity, and inclusion.  Together, we pledge to support our students and their families through these conversations, to challenge injustices and institutional racism, to examine implicit bias, and to remain committed to equity.  

For our parents, we have compiled the following list of resources that you may find useful when talking about race with your children.  Please know that this is not a complete list and creating this list is only the beginning of how we will support the Norwood Community through this challenging time.  As we continue to learn and grow as an educational community, we will add to this list of resources for our families and the community at large.  The Norwood Public School District remains committed to working together, as a community,  to foster inclusivity and celebrate our cultural, linguistic and racial diversity.
