Eight year old writes prolific piece on gender equality in class
Hi there. My name is Lauren Singleton and I am a third grade teacher in San Antonio, Texas. This week I had my students respond to the writing prompt, “Do you think women and men are treated the same or differently?”. While the responses of my students ranged from being picked on at recess and the occasional “my mom treats us brothers differently from our sister”, I got this one submission from my student Maya. Little to say, Maya is wise beyond her years. I am so proud to use this platform of public education to allow for my students to voice their views on social issues. I am so proud to know that even eight year olds feel the impact of a socially injustice world. I am so proud that this is our future!
