Arthur Wise, president of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education
This is so true. I worked at a school that was majority black. The students enter 6th grade and their math teacher is a woman who has just gotten off maternity leave and was regularly teaching social studies.
So many of the students failed math that year. They were made to feel like their failure was wholly their fault and their lack of caring about their education. Obviously they are individuals that could have made better decisions in class and with their homework, but the fact that the administration was so unorganized was never brought up.
i remember looking at practice math exams for people who want to teach and i the passing score was like 55%. i’m horrible at math and can pass that! i don’t need to be teaching math!

Some cultures, especially cultures associated with a faith tradition, welcome new members.
When cultures welcome new members, you have to actually join the culture and be accepted as a member in order to be part of it. Identifying as part of it isn’t enough. Neither is having a really strong desire to be part of it, or feeling really strongly that you are destined to be part of it.
Your desire is not another group’s obligation.
