Public education is diverse, unifying
Recently, I had the privilege of attending the end-of-the-year awards program for the English language learners (ELL) at Glenbard North High School. The evening’s activities reminded me again of the great role that our American public education system plays in our local communities, our society and our culture.
As I interacted with the students and parents, I was struck by how comfortable and confident the students were. The local school was key in guiding their transition and integration into our community and culture.
Whether we are new refugees or grandsons and granddaughters of immigrants, throughout history, our local public school system has been the vehicle that assimilates and unites all of us as equal and respected members of our community, state and country.
