Reply to "Study: Black Teachers Won’t Save Black Students from Receiving Harsher Punishments Than Their White Peers"

"But I have to say something .... how often sometimes I and mostly wifey would go to PTA meetings and other events at school and I would see only a few blacks sometimes we would be the only ones and the school is like 1/4, 1/3 blacks."

This is a Pet Peeve with me; don't get me wrong, I fully understand the importance of parents being involved in their child's education and the benefits of parents attending and being involved in the PTA.  

 

But, I also firmly believe thatALL children should be treated equally, fairly and the same, regardless to who their parents are or are not, regardless to what "neighborhood" they come from, regardless to their race or religion, and regardless to whether their parents are heavily involved with the school or regularly attend the PTA or not

 

In fact, how teachers, faculty, administrators and staff will actually treat one child or another actually being dependdent on parental involvement with the school and/or PTA in the first place, is part of the problem.
