Equity Initiatives

Citywide Effort to Address Implicit Bias in School Discipline:

A Houston-based coalition of organizations is working to end the school to prison pipeline for students of color by championing more equitable policies and practices today for a better Houston tomorrow. The Citywide Effort to Address Implicit Bias in School Discipline is a collaboration between the Houston Health Department’s My Brother’s Keeper Houston, Harris County Juvenile Probation Department, Mental Health America of Greater Houston’s Center for School Behavioral Health, and Leadership for Educational Equity.

Project Goal: By taking a collective impact approach through workgroups, we seek to build a comprehensive and intentional citywide school-discipline reform strategy supported by all respective parties. At the end of the workgroup series, project and pilot ideas will be selected with the goal of applying for funding through a Request-for-Proposal.
