A thread about what’s going on in #louisville right now. I’m going to touch on the “failing school” narrative, structural racism, and reform for our city. I am a dad, a tax payer, and a principal for @JCPSKY

For my students that read this, think about the points I have here, reflect on them, and balance them with your breasts experiences. You will be in a position soon to do something about it.

I am a principal of a predominately black school. We are among the highest free and reduced lunch count in our state. Our students have many barriers and roadblocks in front of them. I work with good people who actively work to remove them #iroquoisbelieves

Clear reason I APPLAUD @JCPSSuper and the @JCPSKY Board of Education decision to significantly increase mental health practitioners in our schools: We had several students working at Olive Garden this weekend witness a man get killed senselessly.

Our kids need this!
I am thankful our leadership sees this issue as a real issue for our community. I WISH I could say this kind of stuff is isolated. It’s not. Unfortunately we have more and more our students have to deal with across the district. I applaud more resources.
In my years as a principal I have only seen this increase. A child can not learn if they don’t feel safe and we are in a position where the school is often the best place to get frontline care and help. It’s not a question of should we... but of how much can we?

My thoughts:

I was taught about MLK as a kid k-12. In college I learned more about his economic stances. On my own I learned that beyond his sense of justice, the man was a true revolutionary. 1/
I chose this speech this year because Dr. King challenges us to live up to the ideals of our nation. This is a worthy challenge, relevant now as it was then.
