Rise Up Doylestown’s Human Rights and Education Action Committees are paying close attention to what is happening in the Central Bucks School District around equity and inclusion. The PA Department of Education just released this Equity and Inclusion toolkit this week, in response to a rise in racist, bigoted and hateful actions in schools across the commonwealth.
Today, we released a new resource to help Pennsylvania schools prevent and respond to racially charged and bias-related incidents in their communities.
“To perform their best, students must feel safe in school,” Governor Tom Wolf said. “A healthy and safe environment can help our students thrive, and every student regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression should be provided the opportunity to learn free from discrimination, fear, or harassment. My administration is dedicated to improving education in Pennsylvania and we’ll continue working to ensure every student has the opportunity to excel.”PA Equity Inclusion Toolkit
