How Boston Public Schools Can Recruit and Retain Black Male Teachers


1. I am a White female teacher. I ask no one for help with guiding my students to be the best they can be. I almost always teach in the most difficult schools, and I have a long history of successfully preparing my students for the next phase of their education and for their lives. Please don't single me out or stereotype me. 2. It isn't only Black male teachers who suffer from the racism that remains endemic in Boston. Successful, competent, capable Black male principals are regularly passed over unless they are highly-versed in cowtowing to the powers that be.

Come on, stop this racism, Education is for all and equal to everyone no matter he or she is black or white or what else, its really bad to see that racism has attacked education also. :(
