The National Education Association has committed to promote the Black Lives Matter Week of Action in schools during Black History month in 2019, using existing communication resources, specifically calling for clear efforts to demonstrate support for the three demands of the BLM Week of Action in schools:

1. Ending zero-tolerance policies and replacing them with restorative justice practices.
2. Hiring and mentoring Black educators.
3. Mandating that ethnic studies be taught in preK-12 schools in age-appropriate ways.


The BLM Week of Action in schools is a way to further begin to dismantle institutional racism. Acknowledging and promoting this week also furthers our commitment to supporting the BLM movement in a tangible, student-centered, action-based way.
