Why not try real solutions?
Spokane could just decide to love its community more. Everyone wants less crime, but leaning on police to do all the work just creates more prisoners. We need to actually invest in our community; in each other.
SCAR believes everyone has the right to a high-quality education. The work is focused on advocating for education reform that promotes equity and justice, and ensuring that every student has access to resources that prepare them for success.
At its core, education reform is about rethinking and restructuring the way we approach schooling in the United States. This means addressing the underlying causes of learning inequality, reducing the reliance on standardized testing, and ensuring that education policies and practices are fair and equitable for all.
As an organization that focuses on racial equity, SCAR believes education reform must be approached with a racial justice lens. Educational inequality disproportionately impacts communities of color, and systemic racism is deeply embedded in every aspect of the education system. The organization’s work is centered on dismantling this racism and creating a more just and equitable education system.
