“Being culturally responsive is about looking at a curriculum, and saying, ‘What are the changes that we need to make to be able to present to our students the best version of our country, our of our community?’ Being culturally responsive is about being public with your data and saying, ‘This is who we are. This is what we are accomplishing. This is where we are falling behind.’ Being culturally responsive should not be a curriculum, it should not be a program, it should not be an initiative. It should be who we are.”
