A Letter to White Women Teachers: An Urgent Plea for Change
Baker, Laura
International Journal of Progressive Education, v13 n2 p180-192 2017
The new Progressive Education Network mission says that Progressive Education "promotes diversity, equity, and justice." These goals cannot be met unless there are substantial changes in the way the majority of teachers in the United States, white women teachers, think and operate. This open letter to that audience from a white woman teacher lays out five important changes that must be made if public schools are to meet and teach all students in our schools. Through stories of experience and research, the letter addresses current issues and suggested practices in teacher thinking, language and action related to the safety of targeted populations and choices made in discipline and curriculum.
