Check out my three part Ed Week series on student trauma.

there’s no such thing as trauma-informed education without active work in dismantling the systemic traumatization of oppressed people. that’s the equivalent of putting a band aid on a bullet wound and calling yourself a doctor. anyone who says different is selling something.
