Addressing Incidents of Bias in Schools: A Guide for Preventing and Reacting to Discrimination Affecting Students
Cabral, Nicole; Gordon, Madison; Leighninger, Matt
Public Agenda
There is a growing concern about discrimination and hate crimes taking place across the country. While incidents of bias can occur anywhere, it is especially troubling when it happens in our schools. Discussing race and discrimination can be difficult for the most seasoned of professionals, however, that discomfort should not prevent important conversations from taking place. This guide is designed to bring together a school community in order to address and prevents incidents of bias, discrimination, and hate crimes. It includes suggestions for facilitating the discussions so that they are safe, illuminating and productive, as well as for organizing the process so that it fits in the daily rhythm of the school community. [This guide was written with incorporated sections from Derek Pierce.]
