So according to the article, HS employed people who didn’t have formal teaching degrees, and that enabled social improvement. Isn’t it interesting that even without trying, often there are benefits of programs designed for one group of people? It’s almost like you can’t help one group without helping other groups.
Equality is interesting, isn’t it? When we treat some groups as less than equal, we do a disservice to everyone. Historically our attempts at making decisions have been ineffective. It’s not my goal to tell people how to make decisions, but certainly skin color is not relevant at all. I wonder when people will judge people by their intentions, character, and situation rather than some arbitrary standard.
It is the most common thing to see people who have been marginalized because they were not what someone else thought they should be. In the past, I was discriminated against on the basis of religion. I certainly understand the frustration of people who face discrimination on a daily basis. The recent ruling on marriage equality is a promising sign that we are growing as a civilization. One day I hope we look back at our past discrimination and wonder why we were ever so immature to think so limited.
