Be Her Resource: A Toolkit About School Resource Officers and Girls of Color

This toolkit is based on first-of-their-kind focus groups and interviews conducted by the Center on Poverty and the National Black Women’s Justice Institute with school resource officers (SROs) and girls of color. It offers strategies and guidance to improve interactions between school-based police and girls of color and decrease the disproportionate use of exclusionary school discipline against girls of color. The research was focused on the South, an area often overlooked in related research.

National Coalition of Girls Schools

From the beginning, the Coalition was grounded in research and inspired by collaboration. In the late 1980s, two educators, Rachel Belash, Head of Miss Porter’s School (CT) and President of the Coalition of Girls’ Boarding Schools and Arlene Gibson, Head of Kent Place School (NJ) and President of the Coalition of Girls’ Day Schools, each issued a call to action among their respective boarding and day girls’ school colleagues. These visionary women had no doubt about the value and benefit of an all-girls education not to mention their own deep and well-founded understanding of how girls learn and succeed. Their goal: to systematically document the benefits of single-sex education for girls and share that information broadly.
