Episode 5 - What to do?

How is the St. Cecilia community responding to the killing of George Floyd?  This week's episode I talk about how to recognize the phases of action/inaction that I have seen in the community around me.  I also share what parents in the white community can and should be doing right now to bring about change.

Thank you to Joe Truss (Twitter @trussleadership) for his support in having me share his tweets during the episode.  An article titled 'Advice for the Newly Woke White Teachers on Teaching Black Children' in Education Week can be found here where Mr. Truss was interviewed for.

Being a principal is weird...
