Our schools can’t change

unless we do

Until 100% of students say “I feel safe and I belong in my school,” we still have work to do. We have an obligation to our youth to create safe, supportive, and equitable environments so they can thrive academically and socially/emotionally. Adults are comfortable talking about how kids should change, but the real work is about us creating the circumstances and conditions in which they can. It’s time to get uncomfortable. Now is the time to transform the way we engage together in schools.
To do this well, it takes:

e.g. data-driven decision-making frameworks to support evidence-based practices
eg: how we engage, communicate, create trust, and strengthen community
taking care of students' hearts in order to teach students' minds
