Many students, like me, attend to linden public schools, but after my experience of being with them since kindergarten, as you grow within this community you learn a lot. One of the many things that I have learned from being an African American is that just because there is diversity around me doesn’t mean that their isn’t any racistism either. Many of the teachers pick on you because your race and culture. I am an honors students, and I strive to do my best, and I come across situations where teacher and students question my race because I am in honors. They expected me to be in the mentally challenged classes. The honors class that I am currently in only consists of one other African-american and we are challenged the most. For example, on test, we can have the same exact answer as someone else yet we still got the question wrong.

The Linden City Board of Education has excellent academics but the thing is that students aren't learning about cultural backgrounds. For example, the schools touch upon African American and slavery, but there is more to that than just slavery there is more to the story and maybe students there would know that if there were African American studies.
I grew up in Linden and made many friends throughout the schools I’ve been at in Linden. One of my best teachers who I can say I have learned a lot from is my English teacher, Ms. Walker. With Ms. Walker being my teacher I honestly feel she is the only teacher who has helped me get ready for college and essays that I will have to write.
