Teachers need to talk about Breonna Taylor

The Hechinger Report – Andre Perry |

“Teachers must help their students (and themselves) find the words to reclaim the humanity a racist society wants to deny them and find the words to create a path towards structural change. Language arts and history teachers often resort to the “Great Books” to help students navigate their lives. But sometimes teaching a Shakespearean tragedy simply won’t do when you’re confronted with real ones every day.”
