Shanee Palmer: A parent’s perspective on education

African Leadership Group: As a parent how do you feel about the school where your child is enrolled?

Shanee Palmer: My child is enrolled in a private school, Peace With Christ Early Learning Center in Aurora, and I feel their curriculum aligns with my household values. 

ALG: Are you having any issues with your child’s school, and if so what are they?

Shanee: I am not having any issues with my child’s school, and for that I’m truly grateful. It is still early in the school year, but I do not foresee any future issues. 

ALG: What are some of the good things you are seeing from this school year?

Shanee: I love seeing the diversity that’s being taught and the book selections are wonderful. “A Friend Like You,” “God Always Loves Me,” and “I Like Mysel,f” just to name a few. It takes a village and our teachers will ask for the parents to partner up with them, which I do to ensure that we have alignment at home and at school on issues like cleaning up after yourself. 

ALG: Are you following the school board election in your district?

Shanee: Yes, I am following the school board election in my district and I will be voting.

ALG: What are the concerns you want candidates to address?

Shanee: It’s time that our voices are heard. Aurora is more diverse than it’s ever been, and it’s important that school districts are equipped and able to adapt to their ever-changing environments, and I believe that’s where we’re lacking. Certain areas of Aurora you’ll see crossing guards and certain areas you will not. Why is that? Crossing guards are very important and should be available and it shouldn’t matter if you’re in an area where there’s more brown people. This needs to be corrected ASAP.
