FREEDOM TO TEACH THE TRUTH

Pledge to Support Honesty in Education

No matter our color, background, or zip code, we want our kids to have an education that imparts honesty about who we are, integrity in how we treat others, and courage to do what’s right. But some politicians are using the dog whistle strategy of distraction and division –trying to dictate what teachers say and block kids from learning our shared stories of confronting injustice to build a more perfect union. We demand that our schools have the resources to meet every child’s needs with well-trained and supported teachers and a curriculum that helps them reckon with the past and shape our future.
