Hi all, 

We're presently at 130 signatures and counting! Thanks to everybody who has shared the petition and encouraged people to sign. It goes a long way in getting the word out. Please consider sharing if you haven't done so already. 

For those who might be unfamiliar with AERO it is, "a project supported by the U.S. State Department’s Office of Overseas Schools (A/OPR/OS) and the Overseas Schools Advisory Council to assist schools in developing and implementing standards-based curricula." (more info including mission and vision available here: 

This standards framework is used in mostly "American" international schools across the world. If we can affect change in the standards then we can create meaningful conversations amongst teachers, admin and students around these important issues of racism, oppression and injustice. We can encourage the international community to be better agents of positive change. 

Keep up the meaningful work and be safe.
