I am surprised by your post, “Is Technology Affectiong Our Relationships?”

Good job! I am really impressed with this. I liked your solution about how we should build more shelters for the homeless in order to help them out and keep the streets looking clean. I really believe that if more shelters were built that would help a lot. I cant wait until you post again because it was very educational to read and there was very good solutions.
I can see that you are passionate about this issue with homeless and police brutality, America has lots of issues and those are absolutely an issue. But, do you think that offering shelter to the homeless should be our priority right now? Don’t you think that the immigration problem happening right now is more important? Lots more lives are at stake with trump threatening to deport immigrants. So, why shouldn’t we focus on a bigger problem right in front of our faces right now? Police brutality is a pretty big issue as well, but I would like to ask how the leaders of America will be able to solve the police brutality problem. They can’t watch over every police out there are make sure that nothing happens. The system will have slip up sometimes so how you you make sure that doesn’t happen, because just the leaders alone will not solve the problem.
Thanks for lifting up your voice and sharing your opinion. -Kevin

This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
