CRE Meets CBE: The Intersection of Radical Change

Competency based education has been around for a while now, but there are few places employing this concept to close educational opportunity gaps for students of color. We will explore some of the successes and challenges faced by a school in the Bronx as they try to bring a culturally responsive lens to the CBE conversation, and discover what it will take to bring more schools serving students of color to the CBE table.
