A university official said this at our meeting the other day:

There are more people in prison than there are students in college dorms nationwide (US).

It is no secret that among affluent countries, the US has the highest rate of incarceration. It is no secret that the disproportionate numbers of those incarcerated are people of color. It is no secret that those who drop out of high schools and colleges are mostly students of color specially Blacks and Latinos. It is no secret that there is a tracking system in the educational system. It is no secret that schools in low-income areas are under-funded. It is no secret that the canon is white.

Connect the dots.
