This story was shared by an NPS student.
Image ID: the background of image 1 is orange (upper one-third) and purple (lower two-thirds), with a large white square with rounded corners overlaying and within that square, this text in purple: “Something happened at lunch this year, where a kid had a girlfriend, and this other guy went up and hugged her. The kid who hugged her is black, and her boyfriend is white. When the girl’s boyfriend saw him hug her, he very roughly pushed him, and they started arguing. Then when teachers came over, they took the black kid to the principal’s office and left the white kid there. The black kid didn’t do anything but hug her, and the white kid shoved him. They then walked with the white kid like they were protecting him from someone.”
Image 2 has the same orange/purple split background, with the white text “Story Themes” running up the lower left side and two columns of white boxes (four per column) displaying our eight story themes. Here, the themes Educational Challenges and Hurt & Exclusion are emphasized with bright/bold colors.
