Edward James Olmos on Education

Edwards James Olmo’s is speaking TRUTH! Very true and sad reality. I can honestly say I really didn’t care about school until I had the option to write a report on Louis Armstrong in the 11th grade. A teacher made the entire class write a report on an influential figure who was not white. Too often we are only given surface level stories about entire races of people, because its easier to place the unknown into a box and categorize them as being the same. Through education we have the opportunity to share knowledge and promote collaboration, to end the fear and xenophobia.
