Education

At its annual meeting at Shaw University Divinity School in Raleigh, NC, African American Presidents and Deans of theological schools in the United States issued a call for action in light of the current state of social justice in the United States of America. One of our leaders, a founding member of the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), noted that the socio-economic and political realities that led to the establishment of SNCC at Shaw University 54 years ago are actually eclipsed by the realities of this day. In 1960 there were lynchings and robe-wearing Klansmen. Today lynchings occur, but in different forms. Klansmen today bivouac without robes and hoods. Slavery still exists but under the auspices of a prison industrial complex. Discrimination thrives, with no...

I don't really know how to start this letter, I have a lot to say and I will probably use this as a therapy. I like to see myself as an eternal optimist and I know I am, but I also had to admit, lately I feel depress and desperate and it's been going on for about 3 months. First, not having any kind of support since I arrived for my studies early in 2020 is something very difficult. The lack of family support is something I already knew but finding yourself, following your dreams and trying to achieve your goals without this support during Covid-19 is very heartbreaking. I knew when I decided to be an entrepreneur and follow entrepreneurship program that my journey will be difficult with loneliness but what I experienced lately is so much more than my expectations. They all have...

Open Letter to the Kettle Moraine School District: On the issue of separation of church and state; double-standards of indoctrinating false religion through Critical Race Theory, climate alarmism, and the LGTBQIA+ agenda. Day in and day out in the daily announcements to the students and the parents of the Kettle Moraine School District, social justice and progressive agendas are shoved down the throats of local families. There’s no prayer allowed in schools yet worshipping the agendas of what has grown into their own religious sect is Critical Race Theory, climate alarmism, and the LGTBQIA+ agenda. These agendas tell our impressionable youth that there is something inherently wrong with them based on their skin color, belief system, or that they are something they are not (a...

Miguel Cardona U.S. Department of Education 400 Maryland Avenue, SW Washington, D.C. 20202 Dear Secretary of Education, I am writing this letter to you in hopes that the education system will be completely transformed in the next few years. In the last two decades U.S. students have scored poorly on the PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment), and its results have shown in the PIAAC (Programme for the International of Adult Competencies). For a country that considers itself “developed”, we are being overtaken by some “underdeveloped” countries. Our education system is stagnant with little to no positive growth over the past few decades. Lower income communities and school districts have not benefited from past attempts to resurrect and improve the education system...

Dear Teachers, First of all, thank you. It would be impossible for me to be the man I am today without your help. From Ms. Bailey in pre-K to Professor Senn in college, all of you have helped me and hundreds of other students grow not only academically, but through your character and deviation, have helped us grow into better people. Being the enabler, or facilitator of a child or adolescent’s education is by no means an easy task, and we, your students, give you thanks for your sacrifice and patience. If you were to ask any child, teenager, or adult to draw a picture of “education,” what would they draw? Chances are, they would draw a classroom. More specifically though, you would have trouble finding a picture that doesn’t include desks, a whiteboard, or a teacher standing of a...

Dear Americans, The history we have been taught throughout school is wrong. We have been taught misconceptions and they have led to American people being ignorant about historical figures and events. Did you know only 38% of American people know that the cause of the Civil War was slavery? Compare this to only 8% of high school seniors who can identify slavery as the main cause of the Civil War. When we see controversies coming into popularity such as the taking down of confederate statues or renaming of schools with names of confederate soldiers, there is an obvious lack of information when it comes to backing up arguments. If you are led believe that the people in the South were just fighting for “states’ rights” and that slavery had little to do with the confederate’s cause, of course...

Dear future students, Thinking about your future is perhaps one of the most important steps you have to take, and it should never be a decision that you make without thinking about it first. If you are an athlete, then the stakes are even higher. As a good athlete, looking for opportunities to not only work on your education but on your sports skills as well, you will have to think about the scholarships that you might be granted and thus kill two birds with one stone. But this might be easier said than done, as finding the right scholarship is not an easy task, especially if you take your competition into account. This is precisely why there are different things that you need to bear in mind before actually finding the scholarship that you want to pursue. First of all, you need to...

For most sitcoms that are shown in today’s age many just serve the purpose of entertaining. I came across this show a couple of years ago, and I enjoyed it not just because of the comedy but also because of the subtle truths that are taught in this show. Black-ish portrays how it is to live in the United States as a black individual. This portrayal mainly focuses on Andre and Rainbow’s current socioeconomic problems, but also from time to time we get to see Andre’s socioeconomic situation as a child giving the viewers two very different portrayals of living while black in America. I found the information presented to me in this show very interesting because none of this is taught in schools. For a time, I was skeptical if this show was telling the truth, worried that maybe the...
