"Achievement Gaps and Racial Segregation: Research Finds an Insidious Cycle" by Sarah D. Sparkes
I will leave the big questions to the researchers and those in educational and sociological think tanks. We may not be able to change society, but we can do our part, one kid at a time. As educators, we must focus on how we can improve our own pedagogical skills and knowledge, develop strong learning/supportive communities within our walls with students and with one another, and continue to strive to build equally strong relationships with students' families and our surrounding community. What we say and do and how we say and do it matters...every single day!
