A Dream Deferred

Sunday April 1, 2018


Reflecting on Dr. King’s dream of a more just and equitable society 50 years after an assassin’s bullet tragically cut short his life, I am convinced that he would be deeply troubled by the current plight of America’s nonwhite youth who are rapidly becoming the numerical majority in our nation’s public schools and, through no fault of their own, are increasingly faced with a “triple whammy of geographic disadvantages” in their educational pursuits.
