Rebekah, Cary, NC Everyone, no matter what color their skin is, needs to see every race, gender, economic status represented in leadership positions, especially in the classroom. That's where our children not only learn book knowledge, but social skills as well. They need to see the equality of every person represented in those who teach them.
