HONESTY PARTNER COMMITMENTS
Every child deserves an honest, high-quality education grounded in truth, facts, and diverse perspective, regardless of race, identity, background, or zip code.
Dismissing racism and discrimination, or minimizing its trauma and impact, irrevocably harms individuals and communities, and prevents pathways to reconciliation and healing.
Students benefit most when caring families, trained educators, and dedicated school boards work together.
Education must reflect and celebrate all student identities, experiences, and cultures to maximize engagement and achievement.
Honesty in education is the freedom of critical thinking, reflection, and the diverse exchange of ideas that are essential to Ohio’s future, viability, and high-functioning, multiracial democracy.
