No one hears the children cries in Alabama. Some of the teachers are trained to kill the young black boys spirit. The leaders of some schools in different districts only want to collect the money from ALL the fun raisers, and lie they do not know about it, and I love the children. Alabama have a heavy problem with educating the black children. They have one foot on their necks and no interest in their well being.
