All is well and be proud of DC who showed up in mass to force the #UnitetheRight2 cowards the door.

And knowledge is power. This guide will parents prepare for their kids starting school.
From learning basic skills like tying shoes, advocating for your child to receive services, Strategies for IEP meetings, and handing bullies or allergies, this how to guide has it all.
as a teacher and a parent I have seen both sides. Knowing your rights as well as cultivating a strong parent teacher relationship from the very beginning is crucial.

When you go back, allow them the same joy you unconsciously (or consciously even) allow other children. Let them wiggle, let them dance, let them talk, let them skip, let them choose how to sit on your carpet, let them stretch, let them run, let them play, let them show their smartness, let them be children.
In every single way.

Teachers of IG.... as you prep for back to school....
Not doing the work to fight institutional racism in your school is going to cost some children their lives. โ€ข Your classroom decor cannot be more important as your restorative justice lesson plans. โ€ขYour Target runs cannot be more important as studying how to pronounce and celebrate studentโ€™s names. โ€ขYour shiny guided reading folders cannot be more important as your unapologetic commitment to developing students to become critically engaged thinkers. ๐Ÿ“š
Choose kind is a great motto- but how can you say โ€œyou are all about love and kindness if social justice is not a part of it?โ€
(Naomi Oโ€™Brien) ๐Ÿ“š
Band-Aid approaches that give just enough to student demands while never addressing the racist structural barriers that created the issues to begin with.
๐Ÿ“š
โ€œIf weโ€™re serious about uprooting racism and racist violence, we have to write a new American history for every student in every classroom, for every monument and museum.โ€ Brian Jones (Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture)
๐Ÿ“š
So the real question (from James Baldwin) becomes, are you ready to accept the true point of an education, which is to develop a group of critically thinking, conscious citizens?

Today marks the 53rd anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act, which is considered among the greatest and most far-reaching pieces of civil rights legislation in U.S. history.
.
On August 6, 1965, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law, banning racial discrimination in voting practices (poll taxes, literacy tests, quizzes, intimidation) by the federal government as well as by state and local governments. In turn, suffrage was finally fully extended to African American women.
