Our Journey to Kindergarten
Holladay, Jennifer
Teaching Tolerance, n36 p18-22 Fall 2009
This article features the Smith-Holladay family, an interracial family, and describes the family's journey to find a "perfect" kindergarten classroom for their daughter. When the time came to find a kindergarten classroom, the family sought to translate that goal into a vision for their child's schooling. They wanted: 1) a public school that is 2) racially, culturally and linguistically diverse and inclusive and 3) academically rigorous. The family's journey to kindergarten forced them to interrogate their values and the meaning of race, class and privilege in their lives and in their community.
