Disrupting Science Education
Historically, minoritized students, such as students of color, students who speak first languages other than English, and students from low-income communities, have had limited opportunities for high-quality and meaningful classroom science. The goal of the OpenSciEd Equitable Science Instruction (OEI) Initiative at Boston College is to help disrupt these inequalities by supporting schools and teachers in instruction that begins with the interests and curiosities of students and empowers student voices to support more equitable learning opportunities for all students.
