Nod to Enrique Alemán

Stolen Education is a very powerful film that provides a deeper understanding into the struggle and pain that lives and breathes in our present US school systems today. If we as teachers do not know and love the families we teach, we will be a part of the oppression, a part of the problem. As well intentioned as we want to be, we need to continue to learn and do better by our communities. We have the power to destroy a life. We have the power to lift a life. We have the power, together to mend our broken system. If not us teachers, who will? If not you, then who? If not me, then who? Borrowing an idea from Beaty, we are not our past's choices but it is up to us to make it right.
