Gerardo and Kevin sit down for a surprise episode! We sit with student activists who discuss the role of race and privilege in their school. These students, participating in an important program on social justice, recently completed a “social justice spirit week” to encourage their peers to step forward, raise their voices, and become agents of change. A can’t-miss episode!
Gerardo and Kevin are back, with a full slate, including their work with the School Reform Initiative, what a Trump means for our students, colleagues, and fellow teachers of color, the school-to-prison pipeline as played out in disciplinary practices, and the daily comedy and inspiration that comes with being a #TooDopeTeacher.
Kevin and Gerardo discuss a recent study, which argues that students of all backgrounds prefer teachers of color. What are the implications for white teachers? What are the implications for teachers of color? What is it that makes students perceive teachers of color so positively? What are the implications for the education system as a whole?
