I'm currently in my second year of my doctoral studies, and I have to say this process is unlike any other educational journey upon which I have embarked. Our professors warned us during our "orientation" of sorts, but at that time it really just seemed like some sort of propaganda. "This process will change your life," or something very similar, is what my cohort and I remember the most as we look back on this past year: all 15 of us. As we move forward and examine what this first year has meant to and for us all, I am reflect again on the class I took this summer, which became the catalyst for my disorientating dilemma.
I'd like to share with you all the reflection paper I submitted for a class titled, Diversity & Educational Policy, which I took this past summer. Given the conversations which are flowing in popular society now, I felt this piece relevant to share.
