    TFtT Episode 5: BLM, Race, Equity and Education

    TFtT Episode 5: BLM, Race, Equity and Education

    In light of the recent racist and discriminative injustices towards the BIPOC community, in this episode of Tales From the Trails, students have a meaningful and open discussion, about their feelings, experiences and stances on the issue. Topics like the George Floyd verdict, culture appropriation and even the importance of leveling the “racial playing field'' are heavily talked about in this segment. As recurring as this event is, it unfortunately isn’t talked about often, especially amongst the student body, which is what makes today’s episode even more significant and profound. 
    This episode also features the Staff Stories for Ms. Ferreira.

    Staff Moderators: Mr. D'Souza, Ms. King, Ms. David
