Anti-Bias Education Goals

While there isn't one "right" way to implement anti-bias education into a classroom, at SCCS, we use the Four Goals in Anti Bias Education as published by NAEYC.

GOAL 1: Identity

  • Teachers will nurture each child's construction of knowledgeable, confident, individual personal and social identities. 

  • Children will demonstrate self-awareness, confidence, family pride, and positive social identities. 

GOAL 2: Diversity

  • Teachers will promote each child's comfortable, empathetic interaction with people from diverse backgrounds.

  • Children will express comfort and joy with human diversity, use accurate language for human differences, and form deep, caring connections across all dimensions of human diversity. 

GOAL 3: Justice

  • Teachers will foster each child's capacity to critically identify bias and will nurture each child's empathy for the hurt bias causes.

  • Children will increasingly recognize unfairness (injustice), have language to describe unfaireness, and understand that unfairness hurts. 

GOAL 4: Activism

  • Teachers will cultivate each child's ability and confidence to stand up for oneself and for others in the face of bias.

  • Children will demonstrate a sense of empowerment and the skills to act, with others or alone, against prejudice and/or discriminatory actions.
