At the heart of #RealIntegration is the commitment to fostering positive and meaningful Relationships across people of different backgrounds and identities. If this is to be anything other than a superficial pledge, it will require difficult conversations about cultural assumptions, implicit bias, privilege, and history among the faculty and administrators at all of our schools. And of course if we expect our schools to be doing this work, it also needs to happen at the highest levels of the DOE.
