  • This is a really important issue. People shouldn’t get away with that kind of thing.

    • I think that this is a great topic to shed some light on. I love that you have a proposed solution to the problem as well.

    • I really love both this info-graphic and the topic you are highlighting. As someone who deals with a variety of mental illnesses, and experiences how school contributes significantly to these issues, I relate to this topic a lot. I think it’s really important that schools start putting the welfare of their students above grades and test scores. Awesome job and keep up the good work!

    • Wow this is a great info-graphic that clearly shows that there is a problem that needs to be taken care of in today’s schools. The one that really sticks out to me is the one about sleep problems. I think that many kids lives and grades are taking hits because of the problem.

    • The way you designed your info graphic with statistics is very convincing and thought provoking. I believe that less pressure needs to be put on students because they are all dealing with things that people don’t know about.

    • Your info-graphic looks great. I quite like all of the statistics you put in as well as the the section where you put in possible solutions to the problem of mental health in schools.

    • Celia, your piece is well said. I think you have discovered something that not many people today understand, you were able to think about how others might be feeling and realizing that that is bigger than yourself. Being white shouldn’t make you feel embarrassed , and I hope it doesn’t even though some people in the past have been racist it doesn’t mean everyone is. However, I do understand your point about all of us being raised in a society that is racist from the time we are born. Listening to people who are affected by racism is important so we know how to stop it and can try to understand how they may feel. I do also believe that yes they should be talking about what makes them uncomfortable, instead of people who are unaffected by it talking. But, it is important to hear white people’s opinions as well so we all can be on the same page and create change/

    • Hi Celia! I also think that this quote is important in the novel. It shows how Huck Is conflicted about what he has grown up knowing and what he is beginning to learn about Jim. Twain does a really good job of using this conflict in order to comment on the times. Awesome job with this journal entry!
