Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! I received an email from Retta of Rainbow City Learning. She wrote about the deplorable conditions which the students and teachers of the Detroit Public Schools must endure every day. Once I saw the photos on the Internet, I was appalled...and relieved that we didn't have it THAT BAD in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
I am not a gifted writer like Retta, but please take the time to read her blog post at http://rainbowcitylearning.blogspot.com/2016/01/setting-sail-with-hope.html. I am sure you will then sign the petition and perhaps join the other bloggers who are writing blog posts and joining her Linky Party. The bloggers are sharing their favorite Dr. King quote and then interpreting it in a way that addresses the current crisis in Detroit.
"The time is always right to do what is right." I have taken a few moments of my day off on MLK, Jr. Day to do what is right for the teachers and students of Detroit. I hope you and the "powers that be" in Detroit do as well...
