  • During the mid 90's my family and i moved to Williamsport. PA, hoping for a better life only to find out that the school system there is worst than being in Philadelphia, dealing with the high crime rate. Having to deal with racism is worst because, you can't identify it. There was a lot of racism in the high school during that time. My son made it through but, it wasn't easy. I hope by now your school has that under control and don't see color first but, see the child and their needs first.
