Dear Chicago Public Schools,
Below is a link to the Frontline broadcast of a class divided. I offer it to you as an example of how to improve the school system.
As a Black parent of Black (former) CPS students (1999-2013), I have had to interact with racists, sexists, bigoted teachers and administrators. Layer upon layer of disregard and coverup of unprofessional and racists behavior and discriminatory application of of doctrine and policy.
A series of seminars along the line of this would expose and potentially eliminate so many of the gross and racists assumptions that impede communication and negatively impact student development.
Add to this the abject failure of CPS to develop curricula that addresses anything but the european american mythology reflects and evidences disregard and indifference to the needs of non-european american students and their families.
