Educational Dreams Deferred

``What happens to a dream deferred?” asked Langston Hughes. I ponder this as well. Recently teachers have been speaking out and advocating for their students, ALL of their students, because in recent months our country’s ideals about immigration have been in constant turmoil. So, it has become apparent that telling our students’ stories has become the most powerful way to remind our country that these children are all of our children and that we must support diversity and unity. Now please, close your eyes and imagine this story.

ALL means ALL: Except TN Dreamers

My name is Josue. I am 3 months old. My family snuck into the United States in the trunk of a car trying to escape drug wars and violence. Like most parents, they have big dreams for me. They want Freedom and Opportunity to be available to me. As we make our way through Texas to Arkansas headed to the Promised Land  in Tennessee, they inch closer to making their dreams for me a reality.
