Whether you’re a licensed teacher or looking to transition into the profession, Meredith’s graduate programs in education will make you stronger. Schools are known to seek out and hire our teachers. Why? Because Meredith’s personalized approach to education empowers our graduates to make an impact in the classroom.
Statement from the Department: People in the Triangle, across the country, and around the world are protesting and are demanding an end to systemic racism that stole George Floyd’s life and has taken the lives of too many others. We know some of their names – Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown. We recognize that there are many more. As educators, we believe Black Lives Matter and we see the impact of racist policies, laws, and beliefs in our schools and in our society. We stand with the protesters who are demanding change and add our voices to theirs. We also acknowledge our role as teacher educators in confronting racism, bias, and privilege, including our own. Right now we are listening with open ears and hearts to our students and colleagues of color at Meredith College and in schools across our state. We know we have work to do personally and professionally to become allies who fight systemic racism and injustice in all its forms. Students in our schools need and deserve antiracist teachers who are not afraid to teach, learn, and lead the way toward equitable schools and a just society. This statement is our initial commitment to action. We plan to engage in critical conversations that don’t stop when the headlines change. We ask our community to hold us accountable and to help us determine what change needs to look like on our campus, in the schools, and in the communities we serve. Now the real work begins. (6/11/20)
