"Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who's done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice."

Awesome! This should definitely have been in our elementary, junior high, and high school history books.

Well, when I applied & was accepted into college, I don't remember being asked that. I DID have to submit grades, SAT scores, a, for lack of better terminology, personal resume of sorts ... clubs (recreational & service), etc. If a person can measure up to that criteria, let them in!

Wonder if the FAFSA still asks about convictions? Many will need aid to attend. Happy to read this as it is a step in the right direction.

Do these school ask for criminal background checks, fingerprinting, photo IDs, or driving records? A parking ticking is paid for under the "criminal" window in most courts or sent to a criminal division. This is yet another form of discrimination & selective "reentry" into communities just looking for another reason or excuse to inflict harm, humiliation, or costs.

I teach life skills to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. How blacks are treated, women are treated, and adults with disabilities are treated are at the heart of teaching them functional skills about living in our society. I cannot avoid these issues if I want to be honest with the students. The class would not otherwise be as relevant.

I am surprised that colleges and universities don't teach more about racism discrimination to students in their classrooms. Public school teachers are required to do so, but at the college level, I suppose the authorities think that everyone's heard the message by then, when, in fact, that isn't always true.
We need more instruction on the meaning of racial equality and expectations in our classrooms. Our students won't be won over, until the faculty are.

I hail from Southeast Texas myself, and it makes me so proud that this guy had such a gay-positive experience in Anahuac, the Alligator Capital of the World! (Seriously, Google it!) Just goes to show tat we're not all a bunch of braindead idiots, and in this case, that may very well have saved his life! And, GO, COOGS! (From a fellow U of H alumna!)

Awesome story. Sad that "good Southern Baptists" couldn't accept their child as being made in the image of the God they profess to worship. This kid was "wonderfully made" just like every other human.

One of the reasons I love teaching is knowing that for some of my students, school life is better than their home life and that school time is their favorite time of the day.

I doubt that as a teen I would have had the maturity or thoughtfulness to understand. Reflecting on my HS education as one of the most privileged students, I fear that I would have reacted to this activity by seeing myself as invincible because of my privilege.

It can also support, build, and reinforce a victim culture. It can create resistance to positive change. It also promotes stereotypes. It can do more harm than good. Like, "The road to getting Trump elected was paved with good intentions forcibly forced down the throats of people who were told to change instead of being led willingly to change".

Sarah, this is a good article that might help us think through some of the work we're doing with faculty in our district. It's written from a student perspective, but I could totally see the same being true for staff. 🤔

There are multiple applications for this concept. The tents could be manufactured in community homeless shelters, offering training and jobs. Also refugee camps.

Loved reading about these young women and this project! Hope they all go on to college!
There are refugee camps that need this product.
Great, but how about actual homes rather than tents? In a country full of billionaires, can't we do better than tents? Tents are for camping not for living in.
Happy Father's Day to all the fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers, second fathers, father figures—and to anyone celebrating a fatherly bond today.
