Mission Statement

The Chicago Grassroots Curriculum Taskforce (CGCT) is working to transform the traditional educational model of classroom learning by infusing the curriculum with local and relevant content from students’ lives. Fueled by community-crafted curriculum, and with an emphasis on local struggles, students engage in critical analysis and action, the arts, community building, and youth-led change in Chicago.

Description

With this critical reshaping of curriculum, the Chicago Grassroots Curriculum Taskforce envisions a day where every student is excited about learning, motivated to complete their formal studies, active in their intellectual growth, and invested in, with their families and communities, a lifelong commitment to justice. We see the construction and compilation of high quality curriculum from the ground up that speaks to student, familial, and community needs, realities, and hopes. We see every school in Chicago embracing grassroots content and curriculum, emphasizing the accurate histories, contributions, experiences, values, and struggles of those traditionally marginalized from status quo mainstream curricula.
