Superintendent Message

During the June 9 governing board meeting, Superintendent Dr. Roger Freeman addressed current national events. The following is a portion of his comments:

In the midst of a worldwide pandemic that has disproportionately impacted minorities and people in poverty, we have all borne witness to the brutal treatment of African Americans in our country. We recognize that the demonstrations that have followed the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others are expressions of the frustration that people of color have amassed over years of persecution, injustices, inequality, and racism.

In order to move forward we must not stand idly by when there is injustice. This is the other epidemic facing our society. We see it when people fail to act, without regard for the impact it will have on their community. And, it appears in people who act out without regard for the impact their behaviors will have on others.

In order to move forward we must understand that to say that black lives matter does not mean that one thinks other lives do not. It means to remember that these count as much as others, not less. To say that there is white privilege is not to say that all white people have had easy lives. It is to say that they have not had to suffer the years of maltreatment that most African Americans have had to endure in our society.

As leaders who value equity, we must work to dismantle all forms of systemic racism and discrimination. We must reaffirm our commitment to being culturally sensitive and ensure that cultural responsiveness permeates all members of our community: our educators, our students, and their families.

It falls to us all to build a sense of hope for our children and to articulate a vision of a future that is supportive and compassionate. One day soon it will fall to all of them to help make a more just nation and to “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
