#ISeeMe Campaign - Donorschoose.org
Teacher and student diversity takes many forms, and #ISeeMe empowers the public to support important dimensions of that diversity. Research shows that students benefit when they see themselves in their teachers and in their learning materials. Inspired by that research, DonorsChoose.org is now enabling people to support classroom requests from underrepresented educators and from all teachers who seek materials that reflect their students' identities.
Led by a diverse group of philanthropic supporters — including former U.S. Secretary of Education John King, Whoopi Goldberg, LeVar Burton, Samuel L. Jackson, Stephen Colbert, John Legend, and Google.org — the goal of the campaign, named #ISeeMe, is to help students see themselves in their teachers and in their learning materials.
The campaign will match donations from the public to classroom requests created by teachers of color, female math and science teachers, and teachers seeking materials that reflect their students' identities. READ MORE.
