The Karson Institute has selected City Neighbors High School* in Baltimore, MD as our inaugural KI Education partner. Under the direction of Dr. Karsonya "Kaye" Wise Whitehead, teachers and staff will spend the year being trained in culturally responsive teaching and instruction; racial equity training, and the social construction of race; creating and maintaining classrooms of excellence and exclusion; and, curriculum and lesson plan development. The training has been custom designed to support the equity and inclusion initiative already happening at CNHS.
*City Neighbors High School is a public charter high school located in the Glenham-Benhar neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland, United States. Opened in 2010, City Neighbors High was the third school launched by the larger City Neighbors Foundation program, a Baltimore-based charter organization.
