• Reflections on Standing Up for Justice
    Messages from L. Karen Monroe,
    Alameda County Superintendent of Schools

    At this moment, as so many of us search for the words to express the inexpressible, it has never been more important to Stand Up for Justice. The uprising now taking place in the streets across our cities and across the globe have made it impossible to ignore the pain caused by the events of recent days and of our history as a nation. It’s time to take a good look at who we are in this moment and what we will need to learn in order to become who we need to be. As educators, we look for the lessons to be learned — they are numerous and steeped in struggle. Over the next four days, our County Superintendent of Schools L. Karen Monroe will be offering a series of personal reflections entitled Teach, Listen, Learn, and Act to attempt to light the path forward for us all. Read more.
