Seattle Met published a group interview including Maria Guzman (BHIS teacher) and Erin Okuno (BHIS parent): How Can Seattle Schools Work Toward Racial Equity? The story talks about what we should be doing – and what they are doing – to create just learning environments in our schools. Shout out to these two exemplary community members!
