* What’s a school to do?

MLK day 1Here’s a great example of what schools can do to continue Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr.’s life work.  As described in today’s News and Observer, Dr. King’s birthday was celebrated in keeping with his beliefs on community service: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”  At St. Mary’s School, students served their community and talked about race and privilege.  As chaplain Ann Bonner-Stewart said, “If we’re not educating students about the way privilege manifests in our lives- it’s like not teaching math.”
