Jim writes: Why is this OK? “High-achieving black youths take classes to help them both as students and citizens.” This program seems to be commendable with outstanding goals – but all children need programs like this – not just specific racial groups. The implication is that only black children are at need – isn’t this racism? Our society ostensibly strives for equality and minimizing or reducing discrimination, but our local educational system supports this program? “Brown, one of Walker’s assistant principals, founded the program two years ago to promote unity and interest in school among his students.” This quotation leads one to believe that this program is for all students – is this a matter of irresponsible reporting?
