What She Wore: knee-length black shorts with a cuff; black and grey striped tee with a scoop neck and tight sleeves that went all the way to the elbow; black slides with a striped button and a kitten heel.
I recently read a blog done is question format on Kelly’s space. I’ve got a lot of questions swirling around in my head since the start of school, so I thought I’d steal her idea. As a warning—I’m pretty frank about race in this blog. I NEVER want to offend anyone, but it could happen. My apologies in advance.
- Why are there so many boys who can’t read in the seventh grade?
- Are we failing the boys, or do girls just develop faster in ALL areas?
- Why do these kids like math? I sure didn’t like it much at their age.
- When does school stop being interesting? Why does it have stop?
- Do the kids see me as more than a white lady? And if they do, how long does it take?
- Do African-American parents like that their children are taught by a predominantly white staff?
- If given a choice, would they rather someone the same race as their children or do they care?
- Is it right if schools are segregated if it’s completely by choice?
- What would make a parent send their child to a school that is predominantly another race? Are children in this situation uncomfortable?
- Why does my lunch hour have to be so late this year? I’m STARVING by twelve-thirty and I still have twenty minutes to go.
