Current Events

Sankofa International Academy encourages the children at an early age to be aware of the world around them.  The children’s homework assignment was to look at a news broadcast for one week and critique the news story.

This allowed the children to see what is deemed noteworthy and the disparity of the black presence in the news. Personally it reaffirmed my position on why I refuse to look at the news.  However I particularly enjoyed this assignment because of the discussions that were initiated between my son and I.

With the 2012 presidential elections so close, I thought it would be interesting to add this poll about quotes from past and present First Ladies.
