The ongoing pandemic has forced us to re-evaluate best practices and relief for parents, teachers, students and administrators. We believe the educational leadership in our community needs to engage in transparency and involve parents and community in solutions that will affect our children for years to come.
- Advocate for safe learning environments, including masks/vaccinations and efforts to prevent violence in schools.
- Focus on K-12 public education and the potential closing of neighborhood schools.
- Elevate racial equity in this space, including making spaces inclusive for LGBTQ people.
- Make sure instances of racism are known.
- Engage administrators around educational material being taught in an equitable fashion -- not just during Black History Month.
