Educational inequity is a civil rights issue. When I think about the expectations for my school and reflect on the resources available, I am filled with rage. The lack of resources at my school is deplorable. I just want my scholars to have every opportunity available. Is that too much to ask? They deserve to have more than what is given to them; they deserve the best.
When you meet my scholars, you may see their worn clothing on the outside. You see that their lives are hard to live. But when you look past their smiles & see deep in their eyes, you see boundless potential crippled by circumstances they did not choose. And it is in those moments that I’m forced to act.
