I've written a lot about teachers lately and the news hasn't been positive. I don't want people to think that I am down on teachers. I really think they have the hardest jobs in the world and coming from a family of educators and having worked in schools - I have seen this firsthand.
However, I also feel that there is data and information that cannot be ignored. There is something going on in schools and classrooms that we need to address, that needs to be discussed, that is affecting our children - all of them.
Here is another article about racial disparities in classrooms. Take a read and then check out my previous blog posts about similar topics here and here.
Have you seen any of this in your child's school? Did you experience anything similar when you were in school? Educators - what are you seeing in your schools? Leave a comment below.
