Meet George

Meet George, a History Teacher at a Secondary School.

In this video, George shares what inspired him to become a teacher.

CARGO Classroom’s main focus is answering Lawrence’s wish.

Enrichment through education, readdressing the imbalance of a Eurocentric curriculum by shining a light on the accomplishments, achievements and contributions of individuals who are often overlooked or misrepresented in history.

Western discourse around people of African and African Diaspora Heritage has been one mostly of victimhood. As society gains a wider understanding and perspectives change with time, we are discovering more narratives to undo this framing of history.

Our focus is purely solution based. Our work is iterative and as a result have remained firmly rooted on the innovative transformational ‘edge’ of the discourse.

Through conversations with countless educators (from qualified teachers to home schooling parents) we have become aware of the challenges around finding confidence in teaching new resources. CARGO Classroom addresses this directly, but there is so much more to it than the resources themselves.
