Schools are the foundation of this country. To truly make America great, the glaring discrepancies in opportunities and resources among students, often white versus non-white, must be addressed and ways to advance public education for all rather than sustaining a model of success for a few must be found. Opportunities to innovate and create alternative methods of teaching have been ignored in a variety of systematic methods, fueling stereotypes in the classroom and community; all a direct result of generations of racism in our country.
