Black Grade School Teachers: The Frontline of the Future
This is the second section within the topic on the Role of Education. This discussion will focus on the trials, tribulations, and admiration of the Black grade school teachers and how their presence and job impacts the Black Community.
The 3 Questions
1. Is it pivotal to have Black school teachers in the educational system for Black students?
2. Are you more or less comfortable with the idea of you or your child having a Black school teacher, or does it not matter?
3. What can the Black Community do to help Black school teachers?
Depending on where you grew/are growing up at, the chances of you having no Black grade school teacher can be high. Many of the people I know and myself included can count how many Black teachers we had prior to going to higher institutes of learning on one hand. Although, most of us did not “suffer” from not having Black school teacher in grade school, there was a void noticed whenever you were fortunate enough to have one. With the undeniable fact that teaching is one of the most important professions in the world, we felt obligated to ask the question of whether Black school teachers can save the destruction of Our Community?
