essay excerpt copy





An essay in an AP class has caused concern amongst faculty and some students.

The assignment was to write an essay utilizing the style of a Jonathan Swift novel, A Modest Proposal,  from the 1700s, which satirically posed the idea of poor people selling babies to the wealthy for food.

The student who wrote the essay did so in a similar manner, yet referenced present day African Americans.

The school sent home a letter explaining the conversations that were being held amongst students and faculty and reiterated that all students are treated fairly.

In a meeting of the Caucus of African American Leaders, activist Carl Snowden mentioned that he had been informed and would have more information shortly.
