Op-Ed: Including Hispanic youth

Furman University sophomore Eboni Johnson wrote an op-ed in the Greenville Journal in which the sociology and Spanish major advances the importance of a multicultural approach to education. With nearly 16 percent of Greenville’s elementary schoolchildren of Hispanic heritage, the need to create a learning environment where they can thrive is increasingly vital to the community, she says. “We, as citizens, all are responsible for creating equal opportunities for high-quality education for our future leaders. We can start by creating an educational atmosphere in which Hispanic children can comfortably and unapologetically be their true selves,” said Johnson.
