From an article I'm currently reading, "Gifted education programs, as alluded to previously, have long been a White space -- overenrolled by White students, taught by White teachers, and protected by White middle class parents" (Kohn, 1998; Sapon-Shevin, 1996).
Thanks for coming to my #TED talk this morning! Happy Sunday!
8. Pay teachers a living wage. We wouldn’t need supplements if every teacher started with a living age for where they live at. Living in NY or LA is very different than living in Atlanta, but the need to be able to live isn’t.
7. We must work actively when we know that any teacher isn’t fit to be around students. We keep pushing our teachers to the point of nervous breakdown and then we’re surprised when we break. Working with students is a gift.
