what makes me mad!!!

History, Shootings, homework.... what do these have in common 

They all

Have it in school

On February 14, 2018, 17 teenagers were

DEAD!!!

Gun control is horrible, we are not doing anything to STOP

If we drop, and mop up our dirty mess, innocent kids wont DIE

 

On December 14, 2012, 6 ago 20 children and 6 adults had DIED, 

There were 17 school shootings in 2018 alone, 

290 since 2013

Right after sandy hook. 

 

HISTORY, a big thing in school. All we hear is

“Learn your history”

“History, you will need it”

“Black history, Martin Luther king Jr./Rosa parks were great people.”

Hey, 

What about Booker T. Washington......

was an American educator, author, orator, and advisor to presidents of the United States. 

 

They never talk about him or Claudette Colvin....

Who is that you ask, she was the first person to sit on the bus, 

BEFORE ROSA PARKS!!!!!

 

Homework....everyday 24/7 we have homework;

At Kirkwood high school, they are getting tons of homework during the week

NOT OVER THE WEEKEND!!!

Homework is taking more that an hour, by time kids get done 

They have to go 

To bed. We are suppose to have at least an hour of free time.....think???

Ok, a 13 year old girl spends about 3 hours on homework a night;

 

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WE NEED TO UPGRADE AND LISTEN TO THE PUBLIC!!!!!
