It's Black History Month, the time each year when we as a society reflect on the many contributions African Americans have made and the many ways in which we have overcome the racial divisiveness that once crippled our country.
In this week's Standard Times, we take a look at the issue of diversity through the eyes of current students at Exeter-West Greenwich High School, one of the "whitest" schools in the state.
How has the issue affect us close to home? Are there still stigmas associated with being "different"?
In addition, we bring you the latest news on how NK Superintendent Dr. Philip Auger feels this year's budget crisis will affect NK Schools and give you an exclusive look at the issues plaguing the still unopened Fire Academy building in Exeter.
All that and much, much more in this week's Standard Times. Pick up a copy today!
