I was kind of surprised to hear an HCC parent at Soup for Teachers say this: I agree with the sentiment (and I'm an HCC parent) but I wouldn't do it this way. Let's not shame kids.
Okay, HCC parents, do you think your child is enrolled in a "apartheid" program? Here's what the dictionary says (after explained it means "a state of being apart," an Afrikaans word.
"Apartheid was a system of racial segregation in South Africa enforced through legislation..."
There is no enforced separate in HCC. The program is open to anyone. The program is not just one race, there are many, many Asian students (despite attempts to make that sound like it does count which baffles me.) Of course, there is underrepresentation by black, Native American and Latino students and that needs to change. But apartheid?
