Miguel Casar (he/him)
02:33:52
wanted to lift this up respectfully… the “standard” is a white/settler colonial/assimilationist that is inherently discriminatory/violent to folks whose culture/identity is not reflected in how these “standards” are measured… I think challenging these systems of measurement has to be a part of how we re-envision education and how we capture the wealth and beauty of our people…
Joel Garcia (he/him)
02:34:21
Yes!!!!
Casey Massimino, Green Arrow CoLab, she/her
02:34:22
Agree ^^^
Tabatha Jones Jolivet (she/her) - BLMLA

That part!
Ellen Giesy
02:34:55
Uplifting @Miguel!!!
Victoria G She/They - Pride In Truth
02:34:55
ABSOLUTELY Miguel. Period.
Tabatha Jones Jolivet (she/her) - BLMLA
02:35:03
Agreeing with you, this “standard” is also inherently anti-Black, as the data shows consistently.
Victoria G She/They - Pride In Truth
02:35:27
Yup ^^
ASh H
02:35:38
that is frightening data
Victoria G She/They - Pride In Truth
02:36:18
Is this enrollment decline because of students dropping out or exiting the facility?
Miguel Casar (he/him)
02:36:19
@Tabatha yes!
Tabatha Jones Jolivet (she/her) - BLMLA
02:36:48
Thanks for lifting this urgent concern, @Miguel.
Dina Wilson
02:38:01
Fewer students are entering our schools over the past several years.
Dina Wilson
02:38:46
This is also reflective of overall decline in K-12 students in LA County
Nicole Brown (she/her) Urban Peace Institute
02:38:52
Can you expand what slide 10 means. What does grade level decrease mean?
Victoria G She/They - Pride In Truth
02:39:02
Are these camps limited to LA county region?
Tabatha Jones Jolivet (she/her) - BLMLA
02:40:23
Is there disaggregated suspension rate data?
Victoria G She/They - Pride In Truth
02:40:43
So if youth are incarcerated in an LA based camp/hall… and LA county enrollment is decreasing within those…. Is it safe to assume that enrollment decline in camps/halls is because students are dropping out of school?
ASh H
02:41:36
these solutions have come from community
Dina Wilson
02:42:08
No, that is not a safe assumption. More analysis is needed. It may only be reflective of population.
Victoria G She/They - Pride In Truth
02:42:17
^^ thank you
Dina Wilson
02:42:36
We have not seen increases in dropout rates as a whole.

thinking about how little time we have together, just want to offer to the group that if anyone wants more data on youth justice system involvement and the really broad and deep promising practices for youth development that youth leaders helped us identify during last year's Youth Justice Work Group, please don't hesitate to let me know how I can support by sharing more information or resources!
