We need more black and brown teachers but not for the reasons you think

Let’s talk about the people in power who do not look like their students

If we are to improve educational outcomes among low-income students of color, then it’s not just the black students who need black teachers; it’s white students too. We regularly extol the benefits of black and brown teachers on the students who look like them. But undoing the racism that stifles achievement requires something more.

Better teaching should be aimed at the source of schooling problems – future policy makers.

Privilege is passed on like inheritance. Therefore, we must educate the children of people currently in power so they won’t replicate the systems of the past. Undoing the racism that muffles achievement requires teaching the scions of privilege who will likely end up running systems that fail students of color.
