5 Foreword If we can look at this time of teaching through a pandemic from a different lens, we might allow ourselves permission to refuse to return to "normal." For many Black, Latinx, and other children of color, schools have oen been places of torture, that they must endure. However, it doesn't have to be that way again, and for our must vulnerable children and youth, it can't be that way again. Fortunately, the experts in this volume are showing us how to change and providing valuable insight into what we need to do for the work that awaits. Culturally responsive and sustaining practices are for all children; every single one of them. ey demand that we truly know our students, that we work with and for them, and that we use moments like the one we are in to develop their own sociopolitical consciousness. ankfully, this volume shows us what we need to do, and why we need to listen to the educators within, as we step into a different world. Dr. Kim Parker is the Assistant Director of the Shady Hill Teacher Training Center and a co-founder of #DisruptTexts and #31DaysIBPOC
