Reader proposes alternative to Michigan Blueprint

Sally Nagy - Rapid City

Growing up, my mom, now a retired TCAPS teacher, asked me what I thought about racism. I thought racism would soon be a thing of the past, as our common humanity would prevail. This may seem to some, naive. But it’s what the movement of Reverend Dr. MLK, Jr. impelled.
