Statement on Violence at U.S. Capitol

The National Alliance of Black School Educators condemns Wednesday’s assault on the United States Capitol. This dastardly action on the part of the lawbreakers will be remembered as the most brazen act of treason in our history.

Educators are entrusted with, among other things, the duty of developing our young people into responsible, law-abiding, and productive citizens. What occurred on January 06, 2021, sends the wrong message to our children.

As teachers and parents, we must tell our children the truth and explain to them what occurred, and why it is important for us to oppose such actions.

Black Educators understand the role and history of civil disobedience. Much of our progress is the result of the struggles of our ancestors and their allies. We do not, however, condone cowardly attacks on our institutions.

As horrified as we were at the assault, we are equally perturbed at the disparate response of the law enforcement officers, vis-à-vis the response to the peaceful black demonstrations.

As we approach the 92nd birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we remember his exhortation that educators must sift and weigh evidence, must discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction.

Doing so will enable us to effectively combat the attacks against our democracy.
