“At my school, there’s this program called the Dreamline. Everyday (the staff) ... post a question. One of the questions that they posted was, ‘What did you want to learn in school?’ There was one (student) comment that said, ‘The true African American story.’ When I first read that, I was like, really? We learned that. But I was wrong. During my history class, we were learning about the Vietnam War. My people had a role in that war, and the fact that it wasn’t mentioned - I felt so ignored. Now I finally understood why the student wrote that.” - Xe, Student Advisory Team member and student at Highland Park Senior
