https://dignityinschools.org/take-action/national-week-of-action

In the meantime, watch our 2017 Video and Share our National Week of Action Demands

We call on districts, states, and the federal government to adopt Education as a Human Right and implement the following demands:

  • Shift funding from school police to counselors, peace builders and positive discipline.
  • Fund and use transformative and restorative justice, mediation and positive interventions in schools.
  • Stop the arrest, school removal and pushout of Black students and other students of color, LGBTQ youth, students that are homeless, and students with disabilities.
  • Make sure states and districts focus on school climate under the new federal law – the Every Student Succeeds Act.
  • End paddling and other forms of physical punishment in all schools.
  • Invest in public education and divest from privatization and publicly funded, privately run charter schools.
