They are employed to effect positive change with individuals, families, groups and entire communities. During Social Work Month take time to learn more about the many positive contributions of the profession.
The North Region SELPA staff and all member Districts stand united with students, staff, local communities, and everyone across the U.S. who has experienced racial bias, violence, or discrimination. I challenge myself and those around me to go further with our actions to stand up to bigotry, hatred, and intolerance. I hope when we look back on 2020 we see how the focus on two viruses (that of Covid-19 and that of systemic racism) caused a tipping point toward making our society a healthier one. In the meantime, we take action as individuals, schools, districts, and communities to refuse (and support others to refuse) racism in our educational mission, because it starts with the words and actions we use to support children. Our influence and responsibility are huge because children look to us for models on "how to be." -- Katy Babcock, North Region SELPA Director.
