Summary- Headline and SWBS
The School is Open!
Frustrated, the towns people found a very old law that might help get rid of the girls in Prudence's school.
Even though the towns people are not happy with the school prudence has decided to open it anyway.
I think the theme is that you should always do what you think is right even if people don´t like it.
Prudence wanted to open a school for girls of color, but the town she lived in was very against the school opening. So she ignored all the negativity and opened her school because she knew it was the right thing to do.
What would have happened if Prudence had decided to give in to all the hate and not opened the school for girls of color?
