Support Dignity in Schools-NY's 2014 Goals by signing here and sharing far and wide:


We call on the New York City Mayor, Chancellor and Dept. of Education to:

1. Mandate Guidance Interventions, like counseling, mediation and restorative justice before suspension (except for the most serious behaviors).

2. Provide Trainings to All School Staff on the purpose and use of Guidance Interventions to prevent and reduce conflict and disruption.

3. End Suspensions for “Defying or Disobeying Authority”, a minor misbehavior that is the second most common reason for suspensions.

Sign here today!

Growing Fairness: A Project for Abolitionist Teachers

Educators aren't waiting for someone else to dismantle the prison industrial complex, or for someone else to reinvent our public school system. They're creating some of the necessary tools to start to do those things. Wanna see?

Sorry, but we are expecting a packed house for our premiere. Fear not! You can still see Growing Fairness!
