The Winners of a Rigged Game Should Not Write the Rules

I received this from Ricardo Torres, educator, who posted it on my page because he thought I would appreciate it.  An understatement.  I wept!  My heart broke and swelled up at the same time.  It inspired me.  Every teacher should hear it.  This is the beauty which happens when a Good Teacher, and an ELL teacher, talks about her day in school, her kids to her brother and he is a poet.
