Families and Groups working directly with Children

as they work to move beyond the pandemics -

But The S.A.U.C.E Series does as it adds something different 

to help you and your family plan next steps! 

                       In cooking, sauce is added to foods for extra flavor.                            The S.A.U.C.E. Framework helps people add something extra as they 

Speak and Act on generally Unspoken, yet connected topics to 

Challenge what's usually Expected.  

It can help them update their skills and attitudes that can possibly lead to improving or adopting different perspectives that can lead to better choices     or even to discover a new normal for this period. 

Why is S.A.U.C.E. needed at this time?

The 2020s pandemics exposed unhealed wounds on different levels. 

Whether referring to 2020s pandemics that are/were viral or social -                              (racial injustice, climate cri​ses, economic inequality & democracy-hurting actions)

they all impact Individuals,  Families, Communities & Nations around the world.

They also impact our Schools which prepare Next Generations for success         with Your Family's help since families are Children's First Teachers! 

HEALING and LEARNING Are Needed to Restore and Balance Life.

Together, they will bring More Wellness & Well-being 

that help build Mental Health  so We Can Move Forward - not back! 

     How We as the People handle this Contradictory Period is important for                       Our Children's Future Success, their Future Families, Communities,               our Nation and the World since we are connected digitally now.

  Who may need SAUCE help - 

- #1 You may be parents, grandparents or other relatives who want to make sure  that your next generations are better prepared than you, or you may have had to step in to raise children due to loved ones dying or who are unable to care for their children during this period. Or

- #2 You may be struggling foster care children preparing to age out of the system or recent high school graduates who are seeking a better way to close gaps in learning that were not covered by schools or your parents, and/or you may be a young parent finding your way too. Or

- #3 You may have made it past graduation as older Millennials and Gen Z and are searching for next step directions as you retool yourselves - or first tool yourselves - for learning how to resolve the many problems earlier generations are leaving to your generations. Or

- #4 You may be professionals who are trying to understand program or classroom dynamics and the changes needed to make this new school year more conducive to student learning by all your students, especially Black and other students of color. You may be grappling with how to make sure that race IS taken into account this time - but you need to know how to do that in a loving and learning way.

Dr. DeBora L'T. Mapp          Founder, Schooling Solutions LLC

As a retired educator, Dr. Mapp is a critical-thinking consultant and author known for a holistic approach to education and life that achieves results. As a descendant of the enslaved, granddaughter of farmers and child of civil rights activist parents, She understands that living, learning, schooling and our families are linked and impacted by historical, political, educational and social forces that require a holistic approach. Dr. Mapp  successfully facilitated changed opinions and improved performances throughout her career as an agency career counselor, P-12 teacher-leader and district curriculum coordinator and university administrator and professor. She parented one daughter and four sons to engineering degrees and is the proud GrandMaMa of seven smart, beautiful and thriving grandchildren.

 Life has definitely changed for everybody! Making it to graduation and more importantly, planning for adult life, is harder to envision with the many uncertainties around the multiple worldwide pandemics listed above. All School Stakeholders are involved in making education better for our Children but also for our Nation. School stakeholders are individuals and groups with direct interests, involvements, concerns or investments in schooling and education. They include children and their families, faculties and staffs in education institutions (child care, P-12 and higher education), government officials and workers and community advocates who support children and families.   

All school stakeholders need to upgrade their skills, competencies and attitudes for today's world. Trying to return to pre-pandemic behaviors should not be what families nor schools seek since all children were not being taught to prepare for a better future. We overlooked a lot of problem areas pre-2020. Reminders of those past areas are everywhere in your face due to social media - and it's now time to deal with them. This period is sort of like pulling a scab off a sore before it's healed what's underneath. 

We are in the second decade of the 21st century but pre-pandemic and present actions and behaviors are more like  those from mid century - and centuries earlier in our nation!  We're in a period where some very vocal people are letting it all hang out as they act their worst towards others with different opinions while trying to take away a few social advances. Many people are trying to heal from this hurtful period where too many Americans and others across the world have lost their lives.  Some people are trying to grasp hope so  financial security in a changing work environment increases. Additional training and education beyond high school are needed for young folk but also for older generations raising children - or not.  

The 21st century has brought changes, challenges and opportunities.  Continuous learning is required to keep up with those changes - especially during this period. We have to understand the many contradictions inherent in our nation's history and how they impact today.  We also have to learn how to live more peacefully with our families and other cultures. 

This requires that all ages use relationship-building, critical thinking and learning skills to develop and hone more positive behaviors, skills and attitudes.  This will help us to show more caring in the roles we play  but also for our joint care as human beings on a planet undergoing people-made climate crises. These areas illustrate the complex and holistic nature of our connected lives.  We have to adjust to change in a rapidly shrinking world.   Schooling Solutions is set to help school stakeholders as they work to empower themselves on different levels so they can better prepare children in next generations for their futures.  

              Let's have a conversation to talk about what you need 

and how Schooling Solutions can help support your efforts . . . .

Why you may need to add A LITTLE SAUCE to your life and job....  

  Sauce adds a little something extra to improve the flavor of food. 

Here S.A.U.C.E. brings seldom-discussed, yet connected, topics to the forefront 

to gain different ways of viewing problems for improved results.  

Adding S.A.U.C.E. can improve the flavor of whatever solution you seek.

The S.A.U.C.E. framework is used to assist stakeholders in gaining deeper holistic understandings for solutions to complex problems since we now know that everything is connected.   Contact Dr. Mapp for consultations, workshops and later speaking engagements.  She has also developed books, posters and other resources to further support what you're going through.  The books and resources in this series are related to the challenges and opportunities of the early 2020's and beyond.  They will be used repeatedly!    The S.A.U.C.E.

I’ve been where you are! I had to change to transform myself to keep up so I could be successful during changing and stressful times. Throughout my life, education and work experiences I learned to support others so they became empowered to transform themselves. As an entrepreneur I consult with groups and coach individuals to become the change they seek, and my books and remote webinars extend this support today. More importantly, as a parent of five children (one daughter and four sons) who grew up to earn engineering degrees, I had to research the best ways to parent and teach them, my middle school students and all jobs I experienced. Schooling Solutions has what you need while working through and after the pandemics. 



Many people forget that families are not just collections of related adults and children. They are a nation's smallest social units and important to society's survival and functioning. The family is a social institution that provides rules about how to live in society through social behaviors, expectations and societal roles.  Many Americans have faith in the power of education to transform society, and some want it to help them transform family life. The U.S. has never had quality education for all.  Social and economic inequities have always been reproduced in our school systems to mirror society.  Change is especially required to meet the needs of the 2020s.  

Society constantly shows that it's unstable, but this period brings in-your-face views of this ​instability on many media screens. The most recent round of major instabilities in our nation and the world began in March  2020.   The viral pandemic changed life as we know it everywhere with fears about the unknown disease that's killing too many but is still not taken seriously by all.  That instability escalated to include dormant and new problems in our families and our nation (and around the world) that include:

  1. Demonstrations against racism and racial injustice (with little understanding by too many Americans of what racism really is,  the history of US policing, etc.);
  2. Home uncertainties with more stressed out parents dealing with work or no work, meeting family needs and remote learning at home (that's inconsistent across schools with too much or little of some things) coupled with  fears of bringing the virus home, whether or not to vaccinate, etc.;
  3. Economic inequities with little money for families exist that keeps them from meeting their needs and access to nutritious foods, shelter, and other necessities of life  (fair pay for work and human dignity have been ongoing problems for centuries);  
  4. Harsh and divided personal and political conversations and actions that threaten our democracy; and
  5. Severe weather conditions caused by the climate crises where people activities, poor decisions and pollution hurt the Earth and hurt humans, too!

 Services and Products We Offer   

We help you identify and clarify barriers and disconnects to form solutions in your school and home through our consulting services, coaching and products. See the resources and services we offer above and on the  Products page.  All school stakeholders (students and their families, and others with interests and involvement in education) have to change so they can find solutions to today's complex problems that began centuries ago.  

In schools, teacher performance is key to student learning in classrooms. This means that the performances of all school stakeholders, including school and district staffs and faculties, have to evolve and change so they can better support teachers and students in their classroom interactions.

Many of us sometimes forget that families are important as society's smallest social unit which rears children who attend schools and will eventually work to support our nation. At home, many changes may need to occur so parents and families can better prepare, love and support their children to become capable and feel cared for as they are prepared for school, living and work.  The pandemics taught us that nothing should be taken for granted, and we all have to do better!

In the community, advocates, initiatives and organizations that support children and families also have to evolve and change. This includes 2020s calls for police, social work, university and others educating new recruits who need to know our true history wile updating institutions so they are more inclusive.  This knowledge needs to be woven into  local and national reform and transformation efforts on many levels  so services can be offered that meet the needs of life today.   The SAUCE Series  is also for advocates and initiatives to use as conversation starters with youth, and for educators needing more information to assist students and their families.
