This summer, Integrated Schools is developing a set of Strategies for Integrating with Equity. With so many parents opting in to integrated/integrating schools, we must equip ourselves to do this work well, meaningfully, sustainably, and with equity as the guiding principle.
Want to help?
Whether you are a parent already sending your kids to integrated/ing schools, are a parent of kids starting this Fall, are a parent just beginning to consider integration, or are a student/teacher/administrator/researcher/organizer, we’d love to have your input.
If you’re new to this topic and believe that you won’t have much to contribute, think again; it’s always important to have the voices of folks just entering this discussion, to know where our beginning places need to be, etc. If you’re well-versed in the research or have your own experiences to share, all the better.
We will be meeting weekly via webinar (meaning that you only need access to internet/computer and a sort-of-quiet space [pajamas welcome]). Nothing like sweltering in your apartment, lounging at a wi-fi’d lake, or dodging the sprinklers and getting some social justice work done!
The Summer Task Force is gathering now. As Task Force members, we will determine best meeting times (democracy!). Email Courtney IntegratingSchools@gmail.com to join the summer fun.
(If you would prefer to contribute in other ways, Integrated Schools can always use social media help, web design prowess, or blog content written/recorded. Email with your interest!)
