Denise Juneau Reminds Us That Public Schools Must be Anti-Racist Institutions
If you aren’t hearing this message from your local and state education leaders, they’re failing their students and communities.
Former Montana Superintendent of Public Instruction and current Seattle Superintendent of Public Schools Denise Juneau sent this to her staff this morning. It’s a message that everyone involved in public education must hear. We need to do more than spin platitudes about racism and racism in this country; we need to work to dismantle racist practices, beliefs, and systems of oppression.
