    I think it’s important to point out that our schools are still heavily segregated.

    When I was in high school I went on a field trip to an inner city school for extra credit. It was weird to see white students interacting with black students. It wasn’t something I would have imagined myself being shocked by but I was, because it forced me to realize that that sort of thing didn’t happen at my school. I thought about the black people at my school. I couldn’t put a face or name to any of them. Except two. Two girls in my social studies class and not one other person for the entire four years of high school.

    It really confused me, because I saw the black kids. There had to be in the neighborhood of a hundred of them, but not only was I never in class with them, none of the other white kids seemed to be either. It wasn’t until a few years later when I found out where they likely were. A lot of black kids end up in special education, and some kids live in communities where pretty much all of the black kids end up in special education.
