Hi Tami,

Can't wait to read more on Foolish Careers. I am Tonya Whitaker, former community newspaper journalist (13 years), technical writer (1.5 years) and accounting assistant (2 years). In 2021, I have decided to concentrate on the miseducation of minority and underrepresented students in the education system. I live in the Dallas area and currently work as an part-time English professor at the local community college. Most of my students are Black and Latinx. They are current in high school seeking to get a jump start on their college and careers. Good idea on paper, but it exposes too many flaws that leads to minority students being stuck in college developmental classes. I foolishly believe that journalism is the best way to prepare K-12 students for future college and career aspirations.
