Equity for All

I was recently reading the July/August, 2020 issue of “The Science Teacher,” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association.  In this issue, I read the “Notes from the Editor “ column written by Ann Haley MacKenzie.  Her article was entitled “Equity for All: Essential for All Facets of the Scientific Enterprise.”

Under the microscope, the cell being observed does not care who is observing it.  Woman, man, African American, Latinx, Asian, gay, middle-class, hearing-challenged, Native American: why has the scientific playing field not been equal for ALL?  How can we, as science educators, erase inequitable practices in our teaching?
