A conscious decision NOT to take a stand on behalf of the children of Michigan’s inalienable right to literacy is tantamount to a willful betrayal of countless Black lives in the state’s largest school district – DPSCD.
People are sick, suffering and dying in astronomical numbers and there’s no question that nothing will ever be quite the same.

As a general rule, the needs of all children must be thoughtfully and equitably centered in all of our decision making.
