About The Minor Collective

The Minor Collective, founded by Kass and Cornelius Minor, is a community-based movement designed to foster sustainable change in schools.

The Minor Collective believes the greatest catalyst for sustainable change within a school community is driven from its heart: the classroom community. A skilled teacher who centers their praxis in student-driven instruction is the most important pathway for creating shifts that lead to sustainable, equitable change— a pathway that underscores a liberated education for all people.

Building a healthy school community takes all of us. That’s why Kass and Cornelius’ work in partnership with communities extends into the classroom and beyond.  Joining our community here helps us to continue our journey along with yours; intentionally, purposefully, and outside of social media. 

In this space, we will focus mostly on building our orientation to justice by enacting it: through our teaching practice in holistic ways.  Here, we honor the many parts of ourselves: the maker, the mom, the caregiver, the chef, the gamer, the many many things that make us us.  In this virtual community, Kass and Corn will show you those parts of themselves! 

Kass and Corn’s odyssey as parents rivals their many adventures as educators, and they draw deep inspiration from their familial experiences. The Minor family enjoys quiet strolls in the city and noisy romps through the country. They make lots of things. Their kitchen has more art than The Guggenheim. They play board and video games, and dance lots when their favorite playlists come on. They spend lots of time reading books.Cornelius knows all the funny voices from the picture books that they read. Kass can bring stuffed animals to life. The children say that The Minors will be one of the first families in space. They question. They investigate. They build. They make spectacular mistakes, and they try again. Kass and Corn encourage this. For them, and for all kids. All humans, really. Because this is how learning happens.
