Curriculum Leaders September 2016 Discussion
As political opinion grows even more polarized and extreme rhetoric becomes commonplace during this election, how do we provide effective avenues in which all our staff and students, regardless of ideology or political affiliation, can respectfully engage in social and political dialogue?
As educational leaders we share the responsibility and moral imperative to model for our students proper conduct during the presidential election and beyond. Along with our pursuit of educational equity, we wish to promote in all our schools a fair and open environment for the exchange of ideas through “civil discourse,” which requires a high level of standard of conduct toward others rather than mere politeness.
