Teachers and staff at Richfield High School apparently begin all of their meetings by committing to dismantling “processes that benefit whiteness.”
That’s according to Principal Stacy Theien-Collins, who spoke to the school board at a Monday meeting.
“We’re going to start like we start all of our high school meetings, which is with our Richfield High School vision of equity,” said Theien-Collins.
She said this “vision of equity” was developed last school year and is used “in all programs, all decisions, [and] all policies.”
It states: “At Richfield High School we believe in providing a rigorous and equitable education reflecting the strengths and experiences of our community. We believe students learn best when they feel safe and affirmed in who they are. Therefore, we commit to dismantling policies and processes that benefit whiteness and other systems of privilege.”
