The main thing I would like to talk about is the black and brown community at Cairo high school. We get treated very differently than the white students. Because of this we have a lot of tension at the school. A lot of times black or brown girls will get called out for wearing something but our white students will not get called out. Also some of the teachers really do not care about the students education and you can tell. While not all teachers at Cairo high are like this mostly all of the teachers are. The building is horrible. All last year on the science wing the girls did not have a restroom because of the mold in the restroom and do not get me started on the rats and bats inside the building. The only thing that is good about Cairo is our spirit for football games.
Cairo High School is in a very conservative town, the faculty doesn't hide the fact that they are either. The education I've received is varied, some teachers really cared about teaching but others were obviously just there for a check.
