Summary

#AISDEquity

A group of high school students from a low income, Title 1, inner-city campus work at a year long internship with a mentor teacher on a pre-K, elementary or middle school campus. Throughout the year they experience first-hand the reality of public education and being a public school teacher. It came to our attention that a group of educators were organizing to ban discretionary suspensions for Pre-K through 2nd grade. We joined forces with that organization and are determined to help change the culture of our district. These high school students have lived and experienced discretionary suspensions. They would like to share their experience of being both a student and an emerging educator.
