Why Juneteenth didn’t end the exploitation of black labor

...violence and state legislation as tools to prevent black citizenship and equality promised under the 14th and 15th amendments...

    Why Juneteenth didn't end the exploitation of black labor
    The U.S. criminal justice system is riven by racial disparity. The Obama administration pursued a plan to reform it. An entire news organization, The Marshall Project, was launched in late 2014 to cover it. Organizations like Black Lives Matter and The Sentencing Project are dedicated to unmaking a system that unjustly targets people of color.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    Before coming to Jane Addams, I was very skeptical. I thought that Jane Addams was like every other school. After coming here, I changed my mind because it s definitely not like any other school. Coming to Jane Addams was probably the best thing I could have ever done. Being at JAHS, I have learned so much about myself. I hated English until I came to JAHS and Mrs. Winter made me start loving it! She gave me a positive attitude towards learning difficult concepts. What I enjoy about Jane Addams High School is how the staff and teachers encourage me to be responsible because no one else will cover for me. We are taught to problem-solve using our critical thinking skills. We analyze problems objectively before acting on it and deciding which approach would be best. I like Jane Addams because the rules apply to everyone. No one gets special treatment. I will apply what I ve learned at JAHS to the outside world by limiting my expectations. By this I mean not to expect everything to be handed to me and that I would get no special treatment when I am going into the world. JAHS taught me I have to work hard for anything I want. This school has made my high school life an entirely new and pleasant experience. Since coming to Jane Addams, I have gained so much knowledge and understanding of how tough of a world we live in, how to deal with authorities and the importance of punctuality regarding everything. They have given me the skills to respect authority and handle a situation in a most well mannered and professional way. I appreciate how many impressions JAHS has made on me. It has taught me how to stay patient, committed, and motivated toward my goals, behaviors, and ambition. Jane Addams High School may be tough on me, but they are training me for the greater future that is ahead.

    What made me successful at JAHS are the teachers. They are always on you about your grades and always make sure you have all your work in. If you work is not turned in you start to fail that class. What I like about this school is that the teachers keep you on point. What I have learn from Jane Addams high school is that you always have to be on point with everything. When I say you have to be on point with everything, I mean that you have to be prepared for everything. When you are in JAHS building you have to look like a scholar and represent the school the right way. Giving up is not a choice at JAHS because there are no excuses. The teachers and other office staff alike encourage the students to attend school every day and be prepared for class.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    I ve been to four different high schools, throughout my high school career. I never saw myself graduating high school because I never liked school and I was always looked down upon by my relatives. Being surrounded by doubt made me doubt myself. I accepted what people said about me and so I agreed with it. My brother attended JAHS, and my aunt thought I should enroll as well. This is my second year at JAHS. JAHS is like a family. I have learned that sometimes you must concede instead of arguing. My teachers have given me the confidence to succeed, while at the same time making me feel like I am part of a family. What made me successful at JAHS was just simply following the little rules they enforce and changing my attitude. Throughout the years, I started to realize that JAHS isn t really as bad as I was making it. What I like about JAHS the most is the support and motivation from the staff.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a parent

    High school hasn t been easy for me as I have been in and out of schools. When I decided to transfer to Jane Addams everything changed for me. At Jane Addams, every single teacher helped me which made me happy I transferred to Jane Addams. In my opinion, if I had stayed at my other school I wouldn t be graduating. While I ve been at Jane Addams, I ve learned quite a lot, especially a lot of new vocabulary. I have also learned a lot of math and social studies which are two of my favorite subjects. I have learned how to pull out context clues to find the definition of a vocabulary word. After I graduate high school, I know all of my new knowledge is going to apply out of school because I m going to head to college and I know there s going to be some familiar work that I have done in the past. I m extremely grateful for all the teachers that helped me get to where I am today.
