“I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him.” Rev. 6:8
I am grateful for the energy that has existed since Cain slew Abel, since the four seals were broken, since bullies and thieves became leaders… those willing to take the blows on the front lines, to continually communicate and educate about policy, practice, and structures — thoughts of oppressions and hate — continually engaging in the process of healing. As one of my brothers has said many a time, we are our only hope. I know it get’s stretched thin, perhaps well hidden; never extinguished.
I am grateful for the Tamalpais Union High School District Policy 0415…
Policy 0415: Equity | Original Adopted Date: 06/14/2022
Overview of the elements to be discussed in the policy
The priority of TUHSD schools is to provide a safe, supportive, and student-centered learning environment to all students. This work will take place in concert with staff, students, parents/families, and social justice educational experts to create hiring practices, staff and student racial incident reporting mechanisms, professional learning, curriculum and instructional practices, mental health support, and systems and structures that dismantle oppression, to eliminate racism, colonialist perspectives, and white supremacy.
I am grateful for my talents and abilities.
