A message from The Friends of Lawrence E. Boone Elementary:
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! www.supportdrjk.com
