2019-2020 School Partnerships
Mira Debs' book focuses on the history of public Montessori in the United States, the critical leadership by educators and parents of color, and the opportunity and challenges to sustaining racially and socioeconomically diverse public Montessori schools today.
Until May 10th, schools can apply for a grant to host a Community Reading of Debs' new book,
Diverse Families, Desirable Schools.
Schools commit to professional development around the community reading and can receive up to 20 copies of the book, plus a one-hour video call with Hawthorne and Debs.

Thanks to Wend Ventures for their generous support.
Tiffany Jewell and I do this work in solidarity with each other for our own accountability and sustainability.
As the incredible Audre Lorde said, “Without community, there is no liberation...but community must not mean a shedding of our differences, nor the pathetic pretense that these differences do not exist.”
Once again we will stand in the intersections of our identities with humility and reflexivity, laying down our defenses, listening to one another, believing one another, locking arms, and moving forward, together.
You are welcome to join us.
