My students are 8th graders in a urban school district in New Jersey. They are children who are hungry for knowledge. We started talking about Freedom Writers with the students and they became very interested. But we do not have these books, nor the excess money in the school budget to purchase them. Our school is a school that was recently re-opened to house students from a closed Charter school. We started the year with little materials in the school. We have since gained some necessary materials, but we are still lacking a sufficient library with a variety of books for the students to choose from. I have multiple students who I have brought books in for them to read from home, but getting a class set of Freedom Writers has become a bigger challenge.
