What Some Students Should Know About the Marketplace

Youth and social justice in the marketplace

Students should learn more about
navigating the marketplace for their own protection.
Innocent middle, even elementary age students may find themselves center stage in a nightmare they can’t process.

One case in point: The recent news story of 9-year old, Jeremiah Harvey, who while shopping with a parent and sibling suddenly found himself publicly accused of groping a female customer. The irate woman threatened to call police as the boy protested and stood nearby distraught.

The accuser approached Harvey. Proximity of the mom unclear.  Harvey,  still learning how to navigate his environment did not know how to handle the situtation.

A review of the viral video raises questions.
Where was the store manager?
Why wasn’t there an immediate request for store tape and security?
