Abstract

Well we should protest and use mathematics, showing them our reasoning. We should fight for this school to stay integrated. As an individual I think I can’t do anything because in order to make change you have to be with a bunch of people to make it happen. That’s how this school was built. (Mirta,1 Latina student, ninth grade)
