Hate has no place in our schools

Leave a Comment

 

Over the past couple weeks, disturbing incidents of racism, misogyny, homophobia, and xenophobia have occurred in schools across our country and in our Commonwealth. At A+ Schools, we want our community to know, especially our children and families, that hate has no place in our schools.

We hope this page can serve as an ongoing resource for principals, teachers, caregivers, mentors, and students to create a more restorative environment. If you have a suggestion for an article, organization, or resource to help our children feel safe in school, please leave a comment.

We want to thank Superintendent Hamlet, Mayor Peduto, and Governor Wolf for speaking out against hate. We stand with them in saying hate has no place in our schools.
