Question: Has anyone considered the possibility that calling one of the newly-formed teams at The Learning Community "The White Community" could be misconstrued or offensive to some? Recent public postings include "A performance presented by the White Community" and "White lunch line." I understand the idea behind it, but think a more appropriate choice could be made.
Answer: When the concept of small communities was discussed by the TLC Task Force last spring, the idea of having students name the communities was proposed. Because our timeframe was short, we decided at that point to go with the school's (and country's) colors of red, white and blue. At some point during this school year, we will re-open this dialogue with the teachers and Task Force to discuss the pros and cons of our community names.
