A Country in Turmoil

Fellow GEDIs:

I know that we spoke about diversity many weeks ago, but given the current state of our nation and the conversations that are happening in the news and social media, I thought that I would share this article with you.

Pedagogy of Rage: Teaching in the Ruins of Ferguson

Where are the teachers and the schools and the colleges and the teacher’s unions?

I do not have to address this issue in the classroom, but as an administrator who has oversight of diversity and inclusion issues, I can only imagine the number of time s this conversation and the Eric Garner case will come up in the weeks to come. I am dealing with my own sense of frustration and disappointment and will some how have to help students work through their feelings simultaneously.
