Today it is an honor and pleasure for me to introduce a new TSM contributor. Never Contrary was gracious enough to provide this fantastic post. Never Contrary has an amazing voice for social justice and understands the intersections of oppression and why we must change systems.

For me this article addresses so many different issues all at once: class, race, gender, and–because Never Contrary is part of the LGBT community–multiple identities experiencing oppression.
Louisiana is consistently in the bottom three states in education every year. It is quite apparent that change is needed. Change has come.
