Notes on Shorewood schools teacher climate

Alec Johnson:

The board sent the memo to the union representing Shorewood teachers in February 2021. It acknowledged that some Black staff members and administrators “have been subject to racist aggressions, microaggressions and hostile treatment by teachers.”

“From what we hear, the impact of these incidents has been to make these building leaders and district administrators feel frustrated and exhausted. Beyond the personal impact, the behavior they have been made subject to makes their jobs more difficult,” the board said in its memo.
