Diversity Equity & Inclusion Content Audit and Linguistic Analysis
K-12 school districts around the country are looking for help as they work with challenges posed by increasingly diverse student bodies. We have developed a program to help address these needs. Our staff has created a living rubric with which your materials are evaluated. Our team performs a linguistic analysis of the content of your teaching materials, textbooks and potential adoptions to highlight DEI concerns regarding issues of race, bias, gender, sex, ability, socio-economic status, national origin, etc. Our results are rendered in precise, easily understood language that your district can use to make informed decisions about the materials you are using. For our K-12 work with school districts, take a look at our DEI site.
