ABSTRACT
The author argues that U.S. schools should engage students in discussions on the controversial incident involving Trayvon Martin, a Florida teenager who was shot and killed in 2012 by neighborhood watch member George Zimmerman. He states that schools that remain silent on the topic are not demonstrating neutrality but instead failing to prepare students for diversity in the U.S. In response, he suggests that schools actively discuss issues of race and justice relevant to students.
