Martin Luther King day

Martin Luther King Junior was an American hero; whose life choices offer many teaching opportunities. On Monday January 15, Valdebernardo celebrated MLK day. For most students it was their first time hearing about the late activist. Dr. King experienced racial segregation and police brutality until the day of his untimely death, but even through the hardship he envisioned a better world, so that no person would have to live the way he was forced to. The goal of introducing Martin Luther King Junior and his legacy to the classrooms was to create a dialogue about stereotyping, race, and respect. It’s key that students think critically, so we asked them to compare and contrast race relations in the United States and in Spain. We hope that the celebration and discussion of Dr. King has left a footprint with all of the students at Valdebernardo high-school.
