There is in the Bible, a scripture, Mark 4-9, that reads ” And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
This morning while listening to the News, I heard a report concerning the new proposed school closings. The report stated the names and locations of the schools being considered for closing
The Newscaster then went on to explain that the majority of the schools (9 out of 10) being closed are occurring in primarily Black neighborhoods.
In spite of the impartiality of the Newscast, my ears heard:
‘We have limited resources so why are we spending money trying to educate them. Let’s put that money towards those who have a chance.’
That’s the way I heard that Newscast, wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing if Chicago was building more schools and less prisons instead of building more prisons and closing existing schools.
