You don’t get to lecture me on this topic. I’m from those places. Trump doesn’t care about them, and rolling back affirmative action won’t help. It’s no coincidence that those regions you mention contain states where funding for education and teacher salaries are the lowest, and where local governments routinely slash budgets. After I let off steam on my blog, I go and do my job helping students from a range of different backgrounds. What exactly are *you* doing…besides trolling people and complaining?
