The Freedom Writers Diary, written by The Freedom Writers and Erin Gruwell, is a book compiled of diary entries written by Erin Gruwell’s students. These diary entries detail the students’ lives; their struggles, their achievements, and their failures. Many say that this book is “inappropriate,” and try to ban this book from school curriculums because of the real topics that this book goes over, such as addiction, abuse, racism, and more. However, reading about these topics is actually beneficial to students. By allowing students to relate to characters in the book, students are able to see that they are not alone in their struggles.
Emma is actually a decent student though, no matter what people think about the “popular group” of kids at school, Emma is part of them and still a good student.

Some people may have the same goals or dreams as you do or you can get with them and plan to help your career. For example, I’m good with kids and I work as a teacher, a friend of mine is an also good with kids and she works as a school social worker, when I see a child with many bruises, need and or want help I would send this case to my friend the school social worker so that way she could properly handle and help the case.
