Information about the BLM at school Demands:
What do we want? Justice!In this era of mass incarceration, there is a school-to-prison-pipeline system that is more invested in locking up youth than unlocking their minds. That system uses harsh discipline policies that push Black students out of schools at disproportionate rates; denies students the right to learn about their own cultures and whitewashes the curriculum to exclude many of the struggles and contributions of Black people and other people of color; and is pushing out Black teachers from the schools in cities around the country. With this analysis, educators in the BLM at School movement developed these demands for the movement:
- End “zero tolerance” discipline, and implement restorative justice
- Hire more black teachers
- Mandate Black history and ethnic studies in K-12 curriculum
- Fund counselors
