What if you could ask any question and get an answer?
What would you ask?
What makes you mad?
What don’t you understand?
What bothers you?
What do you want to change?

“You can get burned badly trying to have this conversation.”
We started our project by taking the time and space for the SSS students to articulate the authentic questions they had on their minds and on their shoulders. Meagan and Mrs. James asked them, “What makes you mad? What worries you? What frustrates you? What do you want to change?” Above are some of the questions they came up with. Working together we narrowed our focus to questions of education, race, and culture, and then came up with our overriding research question: Why Are Our Teachers Racist?
After our research collective identified our main research question, a student hand delivered this letter to Meagan. In the letter he talks about his own questions about race and racism.
