All Schools Should Recognize Black History and Hispanic Heritage Month.

I am a 9th grader that has always enjoyed learning new things. But within my last few school years I've been learning about the same people. Every year that I have been in school I have taken the time to learn about many white males that have made a difference in society. I think that our school systems should take the time to teach our students about Blacks and Hispanics who have made a change too. Some schools do mention a few people, but every year we learn about the same people. Many people don't even know when Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated (September 15 - October 15). And no I didn't learn that in school I Googled it! Make a change and sign please.
