Honouring Black Academic Superstars 🙌🏾
As I co-planned Black History Month events at my university in February 2020, I found myself reflecting on the barriers to success for Black students in my immediate environment. The one that stood out to me at the time was financial barriers and their associated opportunities for relief or lack thereof. After perusing the list of financial awards available, I noticed that there was no award specifically for Black students despite there being awards for other identities. Being a Black student who dabbled in activism, I knew that I had to embark on a journey to change this promptly.
English Language Learners
Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand." Confucius English Language Learners (ELL) have become the largest growing segment of the student population in America.
Role of NGO for Child Education
Education is both the means and end to a better life; means because it empowers you to earn a livelihood, and the end because it increases your awareness on various issues and topics related to the world. From healthcare to appropriate social behaviour and to understand your rights, you evolve as a better citizen along these lines. However, not everyone is lucky enough to afford an education. That’s where NGO working for education comes into the picture.
A Never Ending Curiosity
At the age of 31, I am entering the second semester as a college freshman, for the second time in my life. A couple years after high school, I started taking a few college classes. Due to issues of affordability and the fact I was already working for a company I loved, I dropped out after the second semester. I am now enrolled with a passion and drive to complete the coursework to attain a bachelor's degree along with a plan to cover the costs of my education. While there are many differences between me and many of my new classmates - in age, life experience, autonomy, etc. - there are also many similarities. I have entered into my studies with hope and excitement for what my future holds, but also with many questions about the choices I am making and if what I am doing now will lead to what I want to do later. As like most things in my life, this is a mix of my own hard work, timing, and great privilege. I see this experience as the next “step” in my life, maybe even a turning point in my intellectual journey - one that has been mostly informal. I am coming into what could be considered a new chapter of academics and being able to share myself with others in an intellectual sense. With that, I am putting a lot of thought into how I got where I am today. At every point in my life, including now, I believe I am exactly where I should be. This is despite my doubts about the timing compared to many other people and the challenges I have faced in regards to pursuing a path of furthering my education. After sharing the news about my enrollment with a good friend and also sharing with her my hesitations regarding my older age compared to the standard college demographic, she said something to me that I will always remember. She said, “In three or four years, you will still have aged the same amount of years, so it is better to have aged doing all that you wanted.” She was right. If there is something you want to do in life, age should not be the reason you do not go through with it. It’s also important to me that I do not compare my path or personal goals with anyone else's unique timeline.
Education Reform Continues To Top The List Of Issues Facing The Nation Today
Education reform continues to top the list of issues facing the nation today. Americans are better informed than ever about school performance and its implications for our future, and many feel a sense of urgency about improving their children's education. This urgency is leading to a shift in focus for education policy at all levels - federal, state and local. Many states and localities are enacting policies that put the needs of children and parents over systems, focus on improving student achievement rather than on processes and procedure and policies that empower communities, enterprising school leaders and teachers.
With a dot of her pencil on the black notebook's page of golden lines, Alex added the final piece of punctuation for her last story. She had filled the luxury notebook with various stories over the years, and it would soon be time for her to face her fears of rejection and pursue her dream of publishing a book of short stories. But for now, as her room was being filled with feral young creatures with a desperate need for the instruction they so despised, she closed the notebook and placed its ribbon back its default place. Class was about to begin.
In Pursuit of a Voice
The classroom felt alive. The other kids radiated the warm afterglow of an exciting weekend. I admired how easy it was for them to send messages with just a flick of an eyebrow or the curve of a smile.
We are graduating from college. That means that this is the first day of the last day of your life. No, that is wrong. This is the last day of the first day of school. Nope, that is worse.

Is online learning getting harder, or is it just me?
Fellow students, are you too feeling demotivated, deflated, defeated? Getting headaches, nausea or muscle cramps? It feels like we’ve been staring into this vortex for far too long and it’s sucking the soul out of us...or maybe that’s just me?
"You don't know what you're doing do you?" Barton asked impatiently. Everyone in the class gathered around to see what was going on. It was the last day of school for the students of Prescott Manford Preparatory School, and the students were waiting for the bell to ring. The bell of freedom, the bell that will officially start summer vacation. "Yes, Barton, I do! Now stand aside, and let me work! Sheesh!" Farrah yelled. Farrah was in the middle of solving a puzzle, in which she had to open a small wooden box that had what seemed to be an impossibly challenging opening. Farrah was best known as "The Puzzle Cracker" or "The Mystery Solver" around the school. If a student needed help solving anything, Farrah would be the one they'd go to. She was tall and slim, with thick jet black hair that she often just put up in a ponytail or a messy bun when she was in the middle of solving a puzzle. She was always up for a challenge, and there really wasn't a puzzle that she couldn't solve.
