This story was shared by an NPS parent/caregiver and NPS teacher/staff member.
Image ID: the background of image 1 is orange (upper one-third) and purple (lower two-thirds), with a large white square with rounded corners overlaying and within that square, this text in purple: “My child’s teacher reads books to the class which have people of color as the main character. Many of these books are not focused on the race of the character, which means these characters are being viewed as complex human beings.”
Image 2 has the same orange/purple split background, with the white text “Story Themes” running up the lower left side and two columns of white boxes (four per column) displaying our eight story themes. Here, the themes The Future and Actions & Strategies are emphasized with bright/bold colors.
