Each person has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These rights accord each with dignity that is to be respected by all. Good schools set high standards for student behavior. Academic learning develops a person’s capacities to enjoy life, to live cooperatively and comfortably with others, to contribute to the economic well-being of oneself and society and to be an active citizen. Talents and abilities perfected through an education must be used to make a better world for all. Each person has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Academic learning develops a person’s capacities to enjoy life, to live cooperatively and comfortably with others, to contribute to the economic well-being of oneself and society and to be an active citizen. Schools should help parents and students identify areas of special talent, and make sure no area of learning is neglected. Talents and abilities perfected through an education must be used to make a better world for all. We teach this simple principle every day. Yet every day we see the world violate it in the most heartbreaking of ways. There can be no more profound violation than death at the hands of those who wield state power, or presume they have a personal right, to indulge racist urges and perpetuate white supremacy. To merely begin to say the names – George Floyd … Breonna Taylor … Eric Garner … Sandra Bland … Philando Castile … Ahmaud Arbery – is to recognize the futility of trying to capture the full horror inflicted by systemic racism. These are but a few of those whose lives and potential have been cut short or irreparably damaged by the injustice of racism. We honor the many lives lost and futures derailed. We stand in solidarity with our Black brothers and sisters within and outside Value Schools, and share their anger and grief. Black Lives Matter.Our fifth value calls on all of us to be of service to the community, and we will do our part. Read the letter.U.S. Supreme Court Reinforces All Our ValuesValue Schools commends the recent decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court that reinforce one of our core values, that each person is entitled to respect and dignity. We share the relief of the Dreamers in our community for whom “home is here.” We celebrate their contributions to American society at large, and to our community specifically, and look forward to the day they and their families can feel permanently secure as members of the American family. Likewise, we applaud the Court’s recognition that the protections of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 against sex discrimination must be extended to all, regardless of how they describe themselves. When LGBT+ workers are able to fulfill their potential and be free from discrimination, we all reap the benefits of a stronger and more just society.
