Positive Social Justice Messages
December 13, 2021
The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dear Exchange Community,

Exchange Press made an increased commitment to Ed.Flicks content when the pandemic hit because many of you were asking for more of these kinds of online video resources. We continue to add new videos based on your most requested topics.

A new series of videos on social justice are being added to Ed.Flicks over the next few weeks. In two new recently added ones, “The Moment for Social Justice is Now,” and “The Changing World of Childhood,” Dr. Calvin E. Moore, Jr., CEO of the Council for Professional Recognition makes this statement: “Why now? Because we have to be able to meet the moment, and we have to use it in a variety of ways, not just to have deep conversations, but to change policies and impact the field in a deep way.”
And Valora Washington, President and CEO of The CAYL Institute, says: “So Martin Luther King said the arc bends toward justice and I believe that and I believe in being that optimistic leader, being that optimistic teacher because I do believe the arc does bends toward justice.”

Thank you for your part in making that happen!

Francis, we are grateful to you and those like you for all you’ve done to think and act on behalf of children, families and staff, and to contribute to a more just world in meaningful ways, including wages. Our Exchange community is vast and includes many administrators, advocates, and public leaders who, like front-line educators, ask for information and support on critical issues, including social justice. While you and many others have carried the torch for decades, others are looking for ways to deepen their understanding of challenging topics like this, whether it be at the policy and advocacy level or in day-to-day interactions. Exchange Every Day is just that - an exchange that depends on readers like you sharing your thoughts.

-Tiffany on behalf of Exchange Press team

I am not quite sure I understand this. First, those of us who have been in the field for a long time (I have been involved in one way or another for over 50 years) have dedicated every day to make things better for children, staff, and parents (for example, I took my Head Start from being one that paid the worst wages in the state, to one that paid the most), so this is somewhat of an insult; 2) all the writing I have seen regarding social justice change in the ECE field has focused on the teachers, yet they they really can do little. The people who can produce needed change are administrators, politicians, and people who work for the various state departments of education, special education, and early childhood education.
