Our nation’s future requires tearing down walls, not building them. We must embrace diversity, not hide from it. At STEM K-8 we will stand up to support our students and families in opposing deportations, xenophobia, and racism. We don’t allow excluding on our playground, and oppose it in our country too.
We are living a civil rights lesson. Not in recent memory have citizens stood up so clearly for equity, multiculturalism, and civil rights. Our students can see and join the fight against prejudice and discrimination first hand; the failings of history need not be repeated! The Constitution, the balance of powers between legislative, judicial, and executive branches of government, and civil disobedience are parading past as a living civics curriculum. We will not fail this test!
