Pennsbury: “A K‑12 Conversation on Social Justice”

On February 13, 2021 the Pennsbury School District released the video linked here titled, A K‑12 Conversation on Social Justice, in con­junc­tion with Black History Month, the Day of Service hon­or­ing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the ongo­ing nation­al dis­cus­sion sur­round­ing the prin­ci­ples of democ­ra­cy and social justice. 
This taped con­ver­sa­tion, con­tin­ues the District‘s focus on equi­ty and culturally-responsive prac­tices that are already under­way. Running 1:45 in length, the video includes the sen­si­tive, some­times deeply-personal per­spec­tives of stu­dents, fac­ul­ty, and admin­is­tra­tors as they respond­ed to ques­tions sub­mit­ted by stu­dents. The dis­cus­sion is mod­er­at­ed by Dr. Cherrissa Gibson, Director of Equity, Diversity, and Education, with an intro­duc­tion by Superintendent Dr. William J. Gretzula.
A view­ing guide is pro­vid­ed here to offer an overview of the dis­cus­sion, a list of the ques­tions that were asked, and numer­ous take­away points raised by the panelists. 
Finally, includ­ed here is a link to addi­tion­al resources for fur­ther read­ing, lis­ten­ing, and view­ing by those inter­est­ed in pur­su­ing equi­ty and social jus­tice top­ics even further.
“Our hope is that this coura­geous con­ver­sa­tion will facil­i­tate the many ‘teach­able moments’ for peo­ple of all ages in our school com­mu­ni­ty,” said Dr. Gibson.
