Remember my son Teo’s seventh grade diploma? Well today a new diploma arrived for the recently completed grade and it bears the face of José Martí. I’m wondering if my criticism of the design of the previous certificate influenced, even in a small way, the substitution of the imagine accompanying the phrase: “To: __________ for having satisfactorily completed studies corresponding to the eight grade.”
Accident or intent, it doesn’t matter, I only know that the teacher was much closer to the model I would like for my son. I hope to see her face, which unites rather than excludes, on the next diploma.
The diploma from this year.
The diploma from last year.
