NKC Schools Statement on Events at the Capitol

In classrooms filled with our youngest learners, we teach children how to resolve conflict. The events at the Capitol yesterday in no way mirrored this important skill. While civil protest is a constitutional right, overtaking the Capitol infringed on our democracy. As educators, we know our children are watching. We remain committed to teaching our students how to respect each other’s differences and treasure democracy. It has been a challenging year in which so much has been lost. NKC Schools continues to be amazed by the tremendous resilience our students demonstrate. It is their perspective and voice that provides hope and reassurance for a brighter future.
