Cincinnati Public Schools To Adopt New Anti-Racism Policy

Sep 3, 2020

In response to the state of the nation, Cincinnati Public Schools wants to be the first district in Ohio to adopt what it calls an anti-racism policy, focusing on how racism affects its Black students and staff. The draft policy aims to eliminate all forms of racism from the district.

CPS already has an equity policy, striving to promote inclusion, but the new anti-racism policy would focus specifically on fighting racism against Black students and staff.

You can view a draft of the anti-racism policy and share thoughts on the policy online.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the policy is Cincinnati Public Schools Assistant General Counsel Stephanie Scott; and Board of Education Member Mike Moroski.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
