ASPIRANTES from John I. Leonard High School Successfully Advocate for their Rights...

On October 1, 2009, ASPIRANTES from John I. Leonard High School in Palm Beach County went to a School/Parent meeting regarding unfair placement in AP classes. ASPIRANTES, with the support of their Advisor and parents, spoke at the meeting to advocate to have their AP English class switched to a Spanish class. ASPIRANTES spoke loud and clear and the school listened. The outcome was with the ASPIRANTES! It just goes to show that one must organize and speak out in order to make change happen! Congratulations to our outspoken ASPIRANTES!!!
