DC Education Leaders Stand Together Against Hate

August 23 2017 | School News

 
In the wake of recent tragic events in Charlottesville, DC Prep Principals proudly joined DC Mayor Bowser, Deputy Mayor for Education, leaders from the Public Charter School Board, the Office of the State Superintendent of Education, and DC Public Schools in cosigning this letter taking a stand against hate – in any form.

“As educators, it is not only our responsibility to develop students academically, but also to help them grapple with the world around them. It is our hope that we can use these events to have deep and productive conversations about inclusion and respect so that everyone in our schools feels loved, valued, and supported.

We stand in solidarity, as one city of educators, against the idea that any human being is less valuable because of the color of their skin, the language they speak, the religion they practice, or any other aspect of their identity.”

What our Teachers are Saying

“DC Prep is the one school I know where I can have colleagues who share my educational philosophy, an organizational structure that values and supports my instructional practice, and where I can also live the best family life possible given the demands of working at a no excuses school like DC Prep.”
John Becker, 6th Grade Math Teacher (EMC)
