A 13-Year-Old's Slavery Analogy Raises Some Uncomfortable Truths in School - Education - GOOD

A 13-Year-Old's Slavery Analogy Raises Some Uncomfortable Truths in School - Education - GOOD | Teaching & Learning in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

In a bold comparative analysis of The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, Jada Williams, a 13-year old eighth grader at School #3 in Rochester, New York, asserted that in her experience, today's education system is a modern-day version of slavery. According to the Fredrick Douglass Foundation of New York, the schools' teachers and administrators were so offended by Williams' essay that they began a campaign of harassment—kicking her out of class and trying to suspend her—that ultimately forced her parents to withdraw her from the school.
