Chapter 7(a) Quote:
“Education should not be a competition resulting in winners and losers. Education should be a competition against ignorance, and all should be encouraged to win.” ―
Chapter 7(a) Preface
Here are the first seven UC Question 2 Violation Categories we will be covering today:
The SDUSD frequently tosses around all of the 21 Question 2 “Categories” of ‘Discrimination, harassment, intimidation and/or bullying’ in official documents. In fact a SDUSD document titled “Students – Nondiscrimination/Harassment” (Administration Regulation (AR) 5145.3 AR Nondiscrimination-Harassment) provides that list of terms verbatim.
However a search of the definitions and/or examples of HOW the SDUSD could actually violate those categories is, as expected, NOWHERE to be found on the SDUSD website.
District Deeds and astute SDUSD Stakeholders know that the LAST thing the corrupt and opaque SDUSD senior leadership wants is to be fully transparent and honest to empower SDUSD Stakeholders in holding them accountable for their misdeeds.
In other words, the antithesis of the 2023 HAT Trick Resolution.
That is why we are posting those definitions in our Uniform Complaint Handbook today and for the next 2 Sundays. We have gotten our definitions from a wide variety of sources and will list the attribution for each category when possible.
DD TIP: Remember—ALL of the following categories must be VIOLATIONS of question 2 – “Discrimination, harassment, intimidation and/or bullying in programs receiving state financial assistance based on actual or perceived characteristics”
