Is Your School Racist?

Is Your School Racist?

Interesting questions to ask yourself about your school and how you think about your students and the systems at play. 

A quote I found intriguing:  

Someone notices a baby floating in a river. Then another. And another. The person calls for help, jumps into the river and starts pulling babies to safety. More and more babies flow downstream, and people continue to pull them from the river—except one person who takes off at a run, heading upstream to see who or what is throwing babies into the river in the first place and what might be done about that.

“We focus on saving the babies, on individuals rather than on systems,” Marcus says.
