    I always enjoy Derman-Sparks and the work and research she had put into doing antibias education. Her learning goals for both adults and children are helpful for thinking through ways to lessen prejudice and discrimination. I’d recommend this resource for anyone working with young children or educators. I recently used it as I prepared a workshop for future teachers on addressing colorism with young children and found it very valuable (along with Derman-Sparks’ book “What if All the Kids Are Whit I always enjoy Derman-Sparks and the work and research she had put into doing antibias education.
