SPLC’s Teaching Tolerance outreach program provides free resources to educators—teachers, administrators, counselors and other practitioners—who work with children from kindergarten through high school. These resources include classroom lessons, webinars, grants, podcasts, policy guides and much more.
The program emphasizes anti-bias and social justice. The anti-bias approach encourages children and young people to challenge prejudice and learn how to be agents of change in their own lives. SPLC’s Social Justice Standards show how anti-bias education works through the four domains of identity, diversity, justice and action.
Educators can use these materials to supplement their curriculum, to inform their practices, and to create civil and inclusive school communities where children are respected, valued and welcome participants. The goal is to help teachers and schools educate children and youth to be active participants in a diverse democracy.
