When Leigh Ann Erickson taught in Chicago and New York, she witnessed the effects of social injustice every day.
But the view from small town Iowa can be very different. That’s why Erickson founded a social justice course, an African American literature course, and the CARE Conference at Mount Vernon High School. Through this curriculum, Erickson hopes to broaden her students' perspectives about income inequality, race, and the criminal justice system.
