    Ana commented on the post, Cell Phone Horns

    Dear Maria,
    I am impressed by your post “Cell Phone Horns” because it is alarming how using your cellphone can cause damage. I think it’s concerning that many of us are constantly looking down at our phones. 
    One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “Specifically, an Australian study claimed that teens and young adults who often have their…Read More

    In the article, "Feeding the Community" I learned that a group of high school students from Texas work in their school's grocery shop. Linda Tutt High School has opened a student-run grocery shop that is available to its students...

  • Dear Maria,
    I am impressed by your post, “No such thing as a free lunch” because it is incredible how many children are citizens that are eligible to receive food stamps but their parents choose to not get them because they are afraid of not being able to become citizens one day.

    • Dear Ana,

      I am puzzled by your post, “Sylvia Mendez” because racism is one of the things I strongly disagree with. These kids were innocent and didn’t deserve to be treated differently just because of their race. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ “Mexican schools”( in which children were not allowed to speak Spanish, girls were taught how to be housewives, and boys were taught hard labor), did not have enough resources like a “white school”.” I think this is unfair because just because they are Hispanic they are being taught differently than the caucasian kids. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you picked a topic that we should all be discussing.
