7th-Grade Study on JEDI at TEA: How Can Our School Be A More Inclusive, Welcoming, and Open Environment?
Seventeen 7th grade TEA students sat on Sproul Hall’s concrete steps at the University of California at Berkeley. Beth Vallarino, Loren Trux, and Alex Pugenot were supporting students as they composed questions to ask university students about their experiences with Justice, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (JEDI) at UC Berkeley. The goal was to use this data to help inform their pitch to our school’s leadership about how TEA can grow on its journey to be a more inclusive, welcoming, and open environment.

That is what the camera obscura captures, an unaltered image.

Thank you to Truckee Tahoe Lumber Company for supporting our project!
