Much to Lose: Black Mother Educators Respond to Donald Trump's Comments about Schools
Jackson, Tambra O.; Flowers, Natasha C.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n10 p994-998 2017
In this essay, we specifically focus our attention on Donald Trump's perspective of the conditions of schools that Black children attend. The fact remains that as a presidential candidate, he verbalized stereotypical notions that many people hold about the conditions of schools that Black children attend. Thus, the purpose of this essay is to interrupt dangerous stereotypes that often go unchallenged because they are the unspoken norm for mainstream America. Our response is framed by our positionality as Black mother educators. The complex intersection of these identities require us to think deeply about the implications of a Trump administration on the lives of Black children.
