  •  One of my friends used to be a teacher. (1+ / 0-)

    She does hair now. She was also told that a white teacher just can't teach minority students effectively, and that was after she complained that students were threatening her and calling her derogatory names. She tried to switch schools, but was stuck. Finally she quit because nobody would lift a finger to help her deal with the racism directed at her by students, including some pretty vile stuff that made her feel unsafe.

    Needless to say, she is pretty bitter about the experience. She invested a lot of years to be a teacher, and she ended up going to hair school after two years.

    I'm afraid that my signature won't match the mood of my comment.
