This week, School Justice Project is featured in Education on Tap, a podcast by Teach for America. The episode follows the story of Demetri, an SJP client. In the podcast's words, "His fight for his education – at sometimes an embarrassingly personal cost – will lead you through a catharsis of emotion: anger, disappointment, and – eventually – pride."
Even though I know his story so well, it is always powerful to hear him talk about his experience. His voice reminds me how raw the emotions still are and how long he has struggled just to get to the doorstep. And, despite small victories, there are some serious hurdles still ahead. His words serve as a reminder of how critical this work is, why moving the needle can't wait.
