Join fellow educators from across the Washington, DC region, representing all grade levels and all types of schools - independent, public and public charter - for an enriching day exploring how culturally responsive teaching and communication impacts student outcomes.  The NPS Equity Institute is designed to engage, challenge and educate participants while offering resources and action steps. This robust one-day institute will be particularly effective for all grade level teachers and administrators.  All roles are welcome.
