    Students need to learn about all cultures, not just white. Dedicated one month to a culture is not good enough, we need required classes to teach students tolerance and acceptance.

    This sounds very exciting, and I hope our school board can recognize the value of these courses.

    As a member of the Chicano community, I want to see our history and language placed on the same level as the U.S. level especially in communities where the demographics are mainly Mexican, Latino, Chicano, etc.
