"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." These words of Edmund Burke are the cornerstone of every lesson taught in my writing class this year. After studying WWII and conveying the belief that we are thinking beings capable of changing our world, I wanted to bring my students to Washington, DC, to instill pride in our country, to reinforce the importance of freedoms granted by our Constition, and to convey the atrocities of the Holocaust.
Many Liguori Academy students may never have the opportunity to visit Washington, DC, unless it is planned through a school trip. We are scheduled for March 6th, just a few days away!
The inequalities of our educational system deny students oportunities. The area high school has a 52% graduation rate. Liguori Academy is trying to change this harrowing statistic.
The opportunity to experience the world outside of Kensington by visiting our nation's capital will be unforgettable for Liguori Academy students.
