WACSS Insight Series: Funds of Knowledge and DEI Work
Funds of knowledge (Fk) are historically accumulated practices and values found in immigrant households that are passed down from generation to generation and used as tools for survival to resist inequality (Ramos & Kiyama, 2021; Velez-Ibanez, 1992; Velez- Ibanez & Greenberg, 1995). Scholars in educational research who study Fk argue that Fk should be central to the educational curriculum and programs and services when working with students who are pushed to the periphery of the U.S. educational system (Moll et al., 1992; Kiyama, 2011; Luedke, 2019). This presentation will address the historical underpinnings of Fk literature and explore the impact Fk can have on the work of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
