The school year is coming to a close, girls. 
Thoughts as you progress into the summer and on to school next year?  
What are you looking forward to in the future?
What were your favorite parts of this year?
What are you most glad to be finished with?
How did you grow?
What did you learn?
Any advice for others?

"Black studets are far more likely to be suspended from school then their white classmates -- and MN's disparity in suspensions is twice the national average. What's the cause? What are the consequences?"My dad gave me this article to read, because the main story has to do with a kid from my school which i happen to know and I happen to be friends with. So i think you should check out the slideshow or atleast the headline on the newspaper from sunday..
All of this leads you to ask questions. Why are the black students getting suspended more? && is this problem for better or worse? And also what can we do to stop it? What can teachers do to stop it and what can students && the community can do to stop this. It's a list of questions that will never end?

Here's the commercial we watched in our monthly meeting yesterday.
Is it worth adding that the little girl, 10, is also on a soap opera? I don't know.
So what do you think?
Most who spoke up were offended, disgusted... outraged.
Now, what action should TVbyGIRLS take to say this is not acceptable?
