A statement on non-punitive learning, continued.
Children should not be singled out as a form of embarrassment or punishment, or threatened with law enforcement. Healthy forms of accountability should be explored with all children and bias for punishment of Black children should be checked vigorously.
This treatment is unfair and unacceptable, which is why ACE is committed to undoing bias against Black children, especially in cases where it has been allowed to exist in the past. We are starting in the classroom.
