Fort Worth ISD Provides ‘Culturally Responsive Teaching’ Training to ESL Teachers

The Fort Worth Independent School District (FWISD) hosted a professional development seminar promoting “lesson planning as a political act” and aiming to “chip away at the systems of oppression in education” this summer for its Bilingual/English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers.
