  •  Excellent diary and discussion, princss. (3+ / 0-)

    I heard about this on another site... cough... so I came back to DKos to look for it.

    Keep writing here on educational topics. You have credibility as the mother of a Black son who has herself experienced several different types of schooling, and has continued to to inform herself about the latest research on the subject.

    We don't always agree but if I were you, I think that I would be very much like you. If that makes any sense... :) I mean I would be open to alternatives like single sex schooling or a longer school day... anything to keep my kid competitive going forward.

    We do agree that most White teachers are biased when it comes to dealing with Black boys in the classroom. I saw it with my own son. And, I saw it with children at the school where I taught in Los Angeles.
