New Trier High School, one of the nation’s top public schools located in Chicago’s posh North Shore, will not have the day off on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day unlike other schools in its district.

That’s because New Trier’s entire day will be devoted to “develop[ing] a deeper understanding of their own racial identities and the identities of others, and to better understand how we can all work to counter the impact of systemic racism in our lives,” according to the school’s website.
