Be in the details when you’re talking about race in school; be precise. Where EXACTLY do you see crap expectations decide what’s possible? Where do you see yourself or others “scaffolding”, “accommodating” til students are doing work quite far beneath their dignity and capacity.

We must confront our history. We must confront our reality. Schools will change when each black and Latino student is seen as an emerging intellectual worthy of safe, respectful, warm, rigorous space to THINK, SPEAK, and become.

We need to work together now to define anti racist teaching. What would that look like sound like feel like? What aspects of work already in motion must we fold into this vision to combine the power across movements and make the effort whole? What is anti racist teaching to you?

“As a white person, I have a racist worldview. I have racist biases. I have racist patterns + investments in the system of racism. I also have investments in not seeing anything I just said - because of what it suggests about my identity as a good person.”

The woman who said Emmett Till came onto her lied about what he said. The officer who killed Oscar Grant lied about what he did. The police withheld video of Sandra Bland that tells a different story. There’s a long history of black ppl being killed based on someone else’s lie.

As a 3rd gen teacher (that’s tiny me & my 25 yr old mom lotsa years ago❤️) I’m thinking tonight re those who serve. To teach is to be ON all day & to need to lead w heart all day. Justice lies in the details of teaching & learning, and damn it is so hard.

If your TL is full today of Notre Dame burning down, but you heard nothing of the Black churches in Louisiana being burned this month, I hope you'll reflect on how epistemological violence works. Privileged stories hold privileged pain--while erasing the pain of the oppressed.

Time’s always moving on; nothing can stop it. We can’t change the past, but we can still learn from it. And we can shape the future, creating a more peaceful era, by adopting a realistic approach, recognising that the more compassionate you are, the more you’ll find inner peace.

I’m telling you. I promise you. This work feeds you. Aligned curriculum will SAVE YOU TIME and create space for confronting the racist ideas in play in you and in your sphere of influence. And watching students think and thrive around content appropriate for their grade is poetry
