is a broad array of knowledge in traditional subjects with an emphasis on respectful understanding of all cultures and people, like bilingual education and anti-racist pedagogy.
-The opportunity to learn about peers' culture through ethnic classes offered.
-Child-and-community-centered schooling is where problems are engaged by society and children informed by academic disciplines.

(Oakes Pg 65)

-Able to teach to a variety of students who may not all learn the same.
-Ability to put students before themselves.
-Have the motivation to push students to success.
-Passionate about teaching no matter the students or circumstances (The First Grader).
-Students learning would be assessed by schools creating their own version of standardized testing.
-Student tracking should not help determine whether students need extra help and whether they move onto the next grade level.
-Every student starting at the end of 5th grade will take a test similar to a PISA test, which is based off problem solving skills not subject mastery (Ripley).
-Schools can hold "bring your parents to school day"; it can be an eye-opener for parents.
-PTA involvement like volunteers for schools activities such as talent shows, school carnivals, class holiday parties, etc.
