HERNDON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Amid a renewed national spotlight on how issues related to racial equity are taught in public schools, a new free curriculum created by Stride, Inc. (NYSE: LRN) aims to equip K-12 educators, students, and families with the tools they need to be a part of the conversation and thrive in an increasingly diverse world.
“Stride is committed to providing the tools needed to help foster honest, objective, and unbiased conversations about our shared history, the current social climate, and personal perspectives” Tweet this
Stride One Voice, an inquiry-based K–12 curriculum, connects U.S. history and contemporary issues in ways that foster respectful, honest, and fact-based dialogue about race, equity, and inclusion. Rather than following a specific agenda or making assertions about U.S. social institutions, the curriculum encourages students to shape their own perspective on related topics. One Voice course materials and teaching resources are available online and free-of-charge to anyone who wishes to use the content, including families, school leaders, and educators in the country.
“Stride is committed to providing the tools needed to help foster honest, objective, and unbiased conversations about our shared history, the current social climate, and personal perspectives,” said James Rhyu, Chief Executive Officer of Stride. “One Voice continues our effort to bridge the differences that divide our communities. Together, we can build a better, stronger, more inclusive nation.”
One Voice was developed with extensive input, insight, and review from an advisory council of experienced educators representing a diversity of viewpoints and experiences, including; diversity, equity, and inclusion practitioners; business and non-profit leaders; and representatives from minority-owned companies and organizations.
The launch of the One Voice curriculum is part of Stride’s multi-year commitment to supporting racial and socioeconomic equity and inclusion in and through education. Stride has been a leading voice in support of parental choice in American public education for more than 20 years. The company’s other commitments include investing $10 million in scholarships for underserved students and developing socially conscious legal and law enforcement career pathways of study.
