Students in World History have been tackling difficult issues this week in class with maturity and thoughtfulness. After a unit focused on imperialism, students participated in discussions about Africa – past and present. They confronted media stereotypes, residual political and economic effects of imperialism, and what type of aid America should provide to countries confronting poverty or political conflict. I would like to congratulate these students on their willingness to dive into difficult topics and discuss them with depth and compassion. It is so fun to watch ECA students develop into such thoughtful, passionate, balanced young people!
