National Black Lives Matter in School Week of Action Starter Kit

14 Jan

A quick post to share this resource: The National Black Lives Matter in School Week of Action (February 4-8, 2019) Starter Kit.

The demands of the BLM at School movement are commonsense, vital and beneficial, yes, for black students–and for all students, teachers and families:

  1. End “zero tolerance” discipline, and implement restorative justice
  2. Hire more black teachers
  3. Mandate black history and ethnic studies in K-12 curriculum
  4. Fund counselors not cops

And even if you don’t teach, this document, which includes tips for talking with young children, is worth a read.

If you believe that black lives matter, what are the principles you stand for, and how do take action?
