Education has been segregated from the start of mankind. Donald Trump is believed to support this statement.


Dear Mr.Trump

Many people believe that you are against equality in schools. Though those people might not know what you as a human being has to say upon this topic on educational values.

Many years ago, Ruby Bridges was the first black child in a Caucasian school. She was also said to be the one to desegregate all schools. She went through many different obstacles including racism and sexist beliefs others may have had in her school. The teachers were told to have been separating her from the other students from work, verbally, and physically drifted her away from others. In the past century or so women weren’t given the same equality as men. For instance, they didn’t get equal pay, education, opportunities, etc. Even today’s society shows that things really haven’t changed that much in comparison from back then. Mr.Trump you winning the election has pushed many women to think about nothing changing or how many people really didn’t want a women in office. You sir are known as someone who takes advantage of women by saying “I grab them by the pussy”. Women in the world see this as men not wanting a woman in office. They see you as a burden even though that may not be totally correct.

Believe it or not I have dealt with the impact of being a minority in a Caucasian school. Throughout my years of middle school I began to notice how many minorities(Other races) were in my many classrooms. I have seen diversity with my own too eyes and it isn’t pretty. The media has made it seem that you Donald Trump are supporting diversity in campuses. Studies show that 46% of school populations are white and the other percent are the minorities for example African Americans, Mexicans, Indians, and any other racial groups. On TED talk a man by the name Malcolm London stated how school was a place built to segregate the students into two groups Regular and Honors. Even in the past education was severely based on race and financial support. Today we see school as a place where you must be independent.

All sophomore students at Metea Valley High School wrote letters to President-Elect Trump, voicing their issues on ideas that are important to them. These letters were part of a three-week project, where we learned about rhetorical situation; types of claims; types of evidence; and embedding quotes.
