When she found out there were no courses there dedicated to African American authors or literature, she was surprised. “Different ethnicities are now attending suburban area schools, and I believe that students should be educated on the different backgrounds that everyone comes from,” Bates said. Bates got her wish, as a new course being taught at Wauwatosa East and West high schools seeks to change that. The course, Black Literature, was first taught in fall 2019. Although the subject matter is broad, the course generally focuses on what it means to be African American in America today.
It's being taught in conjunction with a renewed effort by the school district to address equity. The course has been years in the making, after several students, teachers and parents expressed an interest in seeing the district teach the subject.

'We're constantly asked for pictures': Teen researches why sending naked pics is now normal. Kiona Osowski's Grade 12 research project started with a question, based on her own experiences as a 17-year-old teenager: why are girls so often asked for nude photos?
"I think a lot of people don't want to talk about it, but it's happening," she said. "We're constantly asked for pictures or we're sent things without our consent. " Since September, Kiona has been looking more closely at why boys feel entitled to ask for nude photos, and why girls feel compelled to send them.

Much of that energy was drawn from the #RedforEd movement, which continued to generate momentum in calling for greater investments in public schools. As a result, educators and their unions head into the new decade stronger than ever. American students aren't getting smarter — and test-based 'reform' initiatives are to blame.
