Discipline disparities between Black and white boys have driven reform efforts for years. But Black girls are arguably the most at-risk student group in the United States. By Erica L. Green , Mark Walker and Eliza Shapiro.
A growing body of evidence has shown that the American education and criminal-justice systems dole out harsher and more frequent discipline to black youth compared with their non-black peers. Researchers built in part on a report that concluded black boys are wrongly perceived as older than their actual age and are more likely to be viewed as guilty when they are suspected of a crime. The study surveyed adults from different racial, ethnic, and educational backgrounds, and from different regions of the country. Most were white and female. The researchers asked some participants about their perceptions of black girls, and some about white girls of the same age.

Here goes: Right across the border from Texas is Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Since we had already been to Mammoth Cave and Wind Cave national parks in Kentucky and South Dakota, we debated skipping Carlsbad. The cave has the staggering size and scope like Mammoth but the intricate details and awesome formations of Wind Cave. Plus it had an elevator. The trip into the caverns was on our 10th wedding anniversary which was fun.
