DISTRICT LEARNING TEAM

MS Team Room #250
2018-2019 Topic & Description:
Challenging Gender Stereotypes in Sutton Public Schools
"You play like a girl!" "Boys don't cry - toughen up!"
These messages and others like them were ones that most adults heard throughout their lives, and that still persist today. These messages - explicit and implicit are not only limiting for our kids, but have longterm ramifications as well. This year the District Learning Team (DLT) will look at how schools challenge and reinforce these gender stereotypes, and what we can do as a community to help break from them.
