To our Teaching Matters community: we are committed to supporting you, and we stand with you. When our community is blatantly hurt, as seen in the numerous tragic deaths and increased violence, we must do more. As educators we have a duty to set an example and make sure our youth are taught about race and systemic injustices, not just in February, but everyday. Here are a few resources that can help us all be educated and informed. Join the conversation: Conversations About Race and Systemic Injustice.
“We have a powerful potential in our youth, and we must have the courage to change old ideas and practices so that we may direct their power toward good ends”… Mary McLeod Bethune
