That's good to hear. I'm not necessarily refering to slurs, however. Those
are quite obvious and exposed. What I refer to is that things aren't done
the "white" way by Hispanic or other people of color. They come from a
totally different place. We think and do things differently. If a child has
difficulty fitting into a Sudbury school because of this, does the staff know
what they're seeing, or does J.C. handle everything?
