What should the school system do to help students?
Student access to resources and opportunities within the schools is an important value in the Wyoming community. However, only 40% of African American respondents to the WCIA Diversity and Inclusion survey believed that was the case here. If you were to be elected to the Wyoming Board of Education, how would you improve equitable access for all students?
The WCIA D&I Community survey indicated that only one third of respondents feel that all citizens are treated equally in Wyoming. If elected, what would you do to ensure that all students are treated equally?
What would be your definition of Inclusive Education and what are your views on inclusive education and examining the intersection of race and school policies to determine the impact on student performance?
The WCIA survey found that two-thirds of residents acknowledge that incidents of racism, harassment and discrimination have occurred in the past, only one-third think they have been dealt with appropriately.
