May 19, 2021:  Racial Justice in the Classroom

Summary:  Talking about racial justice in public education—constructively, honestly, and openly—is difficult. We as educators must continually challenge and dismantle, piece by piece, the structures, policies and implicit biases we all have that prop up white privilege at the expense of students and families of color. To do anything less is to deny the world in which our students live, to concede that some students deserve less.
