I'd like to see this article more widely available on this site, but think this is likely the best place for it. She has far more questions than answers, but gives much food for thought. And it may be that it's the thoughts that count.

Interesting. One of my great fears in my position is to be accused of attempting to force my beliefs on my students. Maybe I should take more chances this year and really engage in these conversations. I think I need to far more embrace the impact I can and maybe should expect myself to have

Oh what a can of worms this would open....especially in the South where some parents and grandparents are still very racist. I don't think teachers should be involved in teaching morality lessons. I always felt uneasy during Red Ribbon Week when we had to talk about the evils of drugs and some kid would always raise his hand and tell about his uncle or his big sister who takes drugs, etc. We can present the facts, but I don't think we should be preaching about what kids should think or do. That's a parent's job.

I disagree with this article. Focusing on one race and telling white teachers to do whatever is not a good idea and could be considered racist as well. There are a lot of police of all "races" getting killed too. I'm not going to push my personal beliefs onto my students.
I agree this is more of a family discussion, like religion.
