Let’s Be Clear, This is a Human Rights Issue
The work of educators must be done with humility and openness, and we have a role to transcend politics and divisions, to think critically and focus on the human rights aspect of the discourse. We are aware that as educators, we cannot share or offer our political views, but rather provide a listening space for our students, staff and school community. We know that our schools are creative spaces that build resilience, understanding and critical thinking.
As with all our work, we encourage you to educate yourselves on colonial history, ongoing global struggles and conflict, and the impact of language on our personal lens. And to continuously advocate for justice and human rights wherever you can. Global Learning London stands with the Palestinian people’s continuous struggles towards liberation and decolonisation; and we stand for peace and justice for all across the globe.
Here are some resources that have been put together by our team:
Having difficult conversations with young people
Using critical thinking skills when reading/watching news
