NOTICE:
While discussions about culture and history can pose the possibility of discussions on discrimination and racism, you can be assured that your instructor is prepared and experienced in discussing these topics. While racism is real and present, it is also a true part of our world's history. It will be discussed in a way that reflects the realities of our world's history and the need for kindness and acceptance of people of all backgrounds. Any expression of direct discrimination or unkindness inside the classroom will be addressed and followed up after class. Students may be removed or addressed formally through Outschool Safety & Support.
