As a pioneering school teacher and school principal, Karim is the modern face of multi-cultural education in today’s world.
He has pioneered school curriculum models demonstrating a respect and appreciation for cultural and racial diversity, and given school children around the world a more informed and insightful understanding of our diverse world, through his project based learning models such as The Brick Project.
When Karim was my doctoral student at Harvard University in 1987, he composed and taught high school curriculum on African Civilizations at Martin Luther King Jr. High School in Harlem, and at Roosevelt High School in the South Bronx.
Methodology that Karim put in place in 1987, is still utilized by high schools today, and will be for generations to come.
