Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
RePublic Schools is a network of schools in Jackson, Mississippi and Nashville, Tennessee working to reimagine public education in the South by preparing all scholars for college and teaching them to code.
Part of reimagining education in the South means that we confront the historic inequities that work against our scholars and actively work to dismantle those inequities.
We are doing this by intentionally creating an environment that embraces, honors, and celebrates our scholars’ identities and experiences, as well as the identities and experiences of our every member of our community. We are working to make our schools environments that affirm our differences across race, gender, age, ethnicity, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, gender orientation, physical abilities, socio-economic class, and other characteristics that make up our unique identities.
Additionally, as a network, we’ve committed to hiring and developing individuals who share the life experiences of our students because we believe these individuals have an additional impact on our scholars.
To hear more about our journey to make our network a diverse and equitable place, read one of our assistant principals’, Darren Gray, blog post.
