The call to change the language of education legislation has been declared a must since the days of the civil rights movement.
We have tried through tolerance and through violence to change the system without changing the language and fifty years later we are still mired in the muck of institutionalized racism despite all the policy produced to alleviate it.
We must, as a nation, recognize and understand the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”
We must adopt, as a nation, the respect that comes from loving our neighbor, and move beyond attitudes of black and white, good and bad, rich or poor, and begin to respect people for the choices they make and hold them accountable for their choices, regardless of any other mitigating circumstances.
America is the greatest social experiment of any time, calling all who are oppressed to the safety of our borders. We must stay true to our intent.
Freedom and justice for all means that every person in America, along with the cultural history they add to the diaspora that is America, is entitled to freedom and justice. It also means that every American is responsible for ensuring that freedom.
A united America must provide our children, our greatest resource, with an excellent education in order to realize and bring about the freedom and justice we all deserve, peacefully, by means of love and respect.
The States of America must become United in changing the language of education by removing the “bar” of achievement to allow every child in America to reach their highest heights.
We must change the language of education so that it concentrates on the gifts and talents of our children so that they know and understand that they have something wonderful to offer this world regardless of any perceived limitations.
Our children deserve to live in the America it was intended to be, free.
