STATEMENT FROM GAB ON RACIAL MATTERS AT GREENDALE HIGH SCHOOL.
The recent news concerning the racial climate at Greendale High School has resulted in GAB receiving inquiries and has prompted us to make a statement.
GAB’s anti-bully Upstander Peer Ambassador Program has been active at Greendale High School for more than five years. This program has grown from a small group of ten students to nearly 240 students on the roster for this school year. This Peer Ambassador Program has always had a diverse makeup with members of all genders, races, ethnicities, and religions. Racism in general is a topic that we discuss frequently at our monthly meetings because of the many problems it has caused in the region, state, and country.
While we have not been told of significant racial tension over the years we have spent working with Greendale High School students, part of GAB’s mission is to educate our children and communities concerning the importance of the love, acceptance and cooperation. We will continue to work with our Peer Ambassadors to further this work and hope to be a part of the conversation on cultural competence that is underway in Greendale Schools.
