The senseless killing of George Floyd has reopened old wounds and rekindled difficult conversations. There is immense pressure and pain across our communities, and as a chair of governors it isn’t enough for me to hear of just sympathy. It falls on us as school leaders to find solutions.
These conversations have been hundreds of years in the making, so while it’s great to hear “we’re listening now”, the question is “why weren’t you listening before?”. That anger is justified.
