    Dec 17, 2013

    Nancy Lopez and Daniel Jimenez

    Coming to the United States at the age of 13 was without doubt a difficult experience.

But there was always one class where I did not feel inferior to other students: math.

    Getting Lost in a Year of Substitute Teachers

    Dec 10, 2013

    Deborah Juarez

    “You’re taking Algebra Readiness this year,” said my school counselor. My face turned pale. I’m going to start my freshman year of high school taking Algebra Readiness? I’d taken Algebra 1 last year in the 8th grade. I never felt so dumb in my life. Then it hit me. I had up to eight teachers in my one year of Algebra 1.

But students in Long Beach have a different vision. Through theatre, students are demonstrating how restorative justice can create a win-win solution for everyone involved in a conflict at sch...

    Confession of a Former Bully

    Oct 10, 2013

    Karla Martinez

I even picked on kids who were older than me because I’d convinced myself that I wasn’t afraid of anyone. I would go after people I disliked or who I considered a threat – anyone who tried to act tougher than me.
