Inequity has hurt Howard County schools – Baltimore Sun

This post was originally published on this site

As a 2013 graduate of Reservoir High School, this issue is deeply personal for me. Although I thrived as a student in Howard County Public Schools (K-8 at Hammond Elementary and Middle), I can reflect now and see that my education was lacking in crucial ways that can only be addressed by increasing equity across the school district. Reservoir High sits somewhere in the middle of Howard County schools in its percentage of students receiving free and reduced meals, however, segregation by academic track was readily apparent in my time there, even as a high school student with a weak understanding of race.
