YOU ASKED: Boone Elementary Community Forum

May 04, 2020  •  4 Comments

A message from The Friends of Lawrence E. Boone Elementary:

DSC_0865DSC_0865 Hello Southeast, East of the River (EoTR), and River East residents, it's time for us to unmute Ward 8 #unmuteW8. It's time to be informed about the racist practices enforced upon our children, the lack of transparency with families, and the wide-spread injustice that's happening to school leadership EoTR, by District of Columbia Public Schools.

Join our first of many community forum informational session meetings this Friday, May 8th to find out what's happening in our DCPS schools and address the below questions and more.

Question: Why did White Instructional Superintendents enforce Relay. Relay has racist and militaristic practices that's forced upon EoTR schools only? No NW schools have Relay.

Question: Why has only White Instructional Superintendents fired/non-reappointed multiple Black principals from SE DC and ZERO principals have been fired in NW DC?

Question: Why were Black principals fired by White Instructional Superintendents for questioning Relay?

If WE don't stand together and demand change NOW, on these issues, DCPS knows WE will fall for whatever they push upon our children EoTR.

We need: parents, guardians, students, teachers, school staff, principals/APs, business owners, vendors activist, clergy, comm. leaders, and ALL residents of Ward 8, in the words of Trayon White, "do something." Thank you!



Stay informed:

I first met Dr. King around 2009 and I worked with her till around 2011 in order to understand the love and appreciation for the computer lab you must go to Wheatley elementary school in Trinidad to the computer lab and what it has done for the students and the community this is a horrible thing to take this away from our children now that we need this technology more than ever I believe this is a racist act by her evaluator I fully support her and I will have more comments because there’s so many things you can say about Dr. king Looking forward to working with you again Dr. King in your endeavor to reclaim your seat at the new building Godspeed
