You watch your normally bubbly child sluggishly get into the car after school. Your parent radar kicks in and you know something is wrong. Is she sick? Does she have a lot of homework? You ask her probing questions and finally through tears she tells you she has been pushed around all day, yelled at and called names from the other kids in school.
It’s her first day of second grade. She is excited. She is wearing her first store bought dress. She is going to an all-white school rather than the Indian school, and she has a lunch pail. Little does she know how important this day would be for her.
