Education department responds to student experience

November 17, 2017

This piece represents the opinion of the author s.

We, the education department, saw the November 10 “No Hate November” article and were disturbed to read about Salim Salim’s experience at a local elementary school last fall. We stand with Salim and all of our students. We are committed to developing culturally-competent educators at Bowdoin and beyond. We make every effort to ensure the best placements in local schools. Fortunately, in most cases, our students experience welcoming, inclusive educational environments. Though we can’t control everything that happens in the field, we want to know about any incidents like this in order to take necessary action.
