Letter: We Support Efforts to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in Our Schools

To the Editor:

As Easton residents and parents, particularly those of us with children currently attending Easton Public Schools, we share the belief that our educational institutions best serve students, as well as their missions in the larger society, when they proactively promote diversity.

We also share the belief that this type of work is vital and relevant, because as American citizens, we are mindful of the history around issues of race in this country.

We therefore, call upon our town and ER9 educational leaders and educators to continue their commitment to diversity education and to ensure a positive environment for student success. We also believe and support the idea that town and educational leaders have the authority and responsibility to ensure that all students feel accepted, safe and welcome. 

In addition, we support ER9 educational leaders’ and teachers’ initiatives to create safe spaces for students to come together for open dialogue on issues of diversity and inclusion, while also creating spaces for students to express their difference in opinions.

As Easton residents and parents, we have a great deal of respect and trust toward our ER9 educational leaders and educators and their ongoing expertise and training in inclusive education and supporting diverse student populations.

Thank you for your hard work in continuing to make Easton Public Schools more inclusive, academically stronger, and therefore, a more pleasant and challenging environment for our children.

Respectfully,

Lise Fleuette
