Will Porcaro started this petition to High School District 211 and

Our community is divided by income, housing, documentation and language. Our schools should be places where those divisions become sources of understanding of each others’ struggles in a way that creates a more cohesive social fabric, rather than places that foment those divisions. This petition calls for all incoming CCSD15 and 54 students to be bilingual by the 4th grade, and all current students, teachers and staff in the District 211 system to be by bilingual by 2024. We also align with the D211forJustice campaign to diversify the make up of our teachers (separate organizers). To say these goals are not achievable would be absurd, given that nearly 30% of the district is already bilingual. Monolingual teaching, especially in a district as diverse as ours, is a choice, and it leads to a broken social fabric created on the basis of language. We also demand that ESL students not be separated from native English classes, and that bilingual education start as early as possible. We support universal pre-K, and hope that down the line we have bilingual pre-K, but until then, please support this petition and D211forJustice.
