Teaching Tolerance Magazine

Issue 56, Summer 2017


Walking Undocumented

Our most vulnerable students often have to stand up for themselves, but they need you to stand with them. The cover feature for our Summer issue illustrates this point through the story of Wildin Acosta, an undocumented student who may never have graduated if his peers and teachers hadn't rallied for his release from an ICE detention center. The issue also features the stories of Native families who speak candidly about what it's like to watch their children navigate school systems that erase American Indian identities, and a series of three powerful pieces about how to bring the Black Lives Matter movement into the classroom.
