MLK Day

We go to school on MLK day. It never occurred to me, until I worked at this school, that our celebration of MLK day is unusual. We give everyone the day off to do…what? Shop? Sleep? We go to school and spend the day, not in our usual classes, but in diversity workshops, celebrating thought and kindness. I wonder how many other holidays we celebrate wrong in the U.S.?
