Education In Englewood by Rosalyn Collins

Being educated in Englewood is very rare, but there are positive figures who we can look up to the have been produced from Englewood, in which I like to refer as (Englehood). The teachers at the school I’m attending now found it hard to believe I was as smart as I am. Attending this learning facility I have seen some of the things I never thought I would see in my life, I single handedly witnessed a student raise his hand and ask for help and the teacher replied “what you need help for you’re a dummy anyway” or even worse “we don’t have the kind of help you need”. The teachers at the school are mostly African American but I would swear up and down they were racist against blacks, the worst case of self hate I have ever seen in my life. I remember once when my teacher referred to the students as a bunch of slaves and I went ballistic because although she wasn’t talking to me I felt offended simply because it’s not these children’s fault they don’t understand basic reading and though sometimes I feel the same way against my own kind I would never refer to them as a bunch of slaves it’s disrespectful and then to turn around and have the audacity to celebrate black history month or Martin Luther King’s birthday it’s like saying one thing but meaning another and I was always taught to mean what you say and to say what you mean but the education system in Englewood is unjust and it all stems from the education system period, the government not wanting to do something about it. It’s like they don’t care, in Englewood nobody is held accountable, so in Englewood everyone’s guilty.
