It’s been heartbreaking to witness the civil unrest and challenging times we are facing across the country and in surrounding communities with the crisis of racial injustice.
As a mother, I am committed to advocating for a quality education, removing the barriers of racism, and building a stronger race equity culture in our community.
As a candidate for Hingham School Committee, educational equity has been part of my platform since I entered this race. I am committed to acknowledging and addressing the impacts of systemic racism in our education system, and focused on creating a diverse and inclusive learning environment within Hingham Public Schools.
I believe we can proactively start to make a difference in Hingham in the following ways:
Updated district-wide reading lists for K-12 to include more black and POC authors and subject matter;
Additional opportunity for all students to engage and integrate with the METCO program during the school day;
Modify the curriculum to incorporate and teach black history throughout the school year in culturally responsible ways
As educational leaders in our community, we need to listen, learn, and represent best practices and implement new policies that support those goals.
