U of M College of Education defends Race, Class & Gender task force report


Last summer, the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Minnesota began the process of revising its curriculum for educating teachers. Seven different task force groups focused on the following categories: special education, families and communities, technology, English language learners, reading, assessment and learning. But, the report that has caused a minor uproar in the media is from the race, class, culture and gender task force. KFAI News Director, Ahndi Fridell, spoke to Dean Jean Quam, who explains how the College of Education began its process for revising the curriculum.
