Dear Highland Park: Listen to Your Students and Learn a Little Something about Systemic Racism

Give these kids an A.

A video by what appears to be a couple dozen Highland Park High School students went up on Instagram yesterday. It starts, “Dear Highland Park.” What follows is a lesson in Highland Park’s racist past and present, and a plea from the students for school administrators, parents, and peers to step up and do something about it. The students certainly are. Watch it.
