Friend Who Worked in a Charter School

I have a reading specialist friend who worked in a charter school part time after she retired. She worked with small groups of children, and because the school was new and did not have classroom libraries, she searched second-hand shops to build classroom libraries for them. Her ethnic background was different than most of the children in the school.

Many of the students at the school did not adapt to her at all. They refused to read the books she shared with them because the children in the books did not have the same skin color as they did. They called her rude names, and sometimes even destroyed the materials she brought for her lessons and their classroom libraries. Their treatment of her was very disrespectful.

I would imagine (and hope) this is not the norm.
