School Board criticized for hiring white teacher

04 August 2014 - 12:41 PM

 

With just weeks before the new Rutherford B. Gaston Middle School opens in southwest Fresno, community and church leaders are calling on Fresno Unified School District to reconsider its hiring of a white teacher to instruct African-American, Latino and Southeast Asian studies there.People at the gathering said the new school, which is the first southwest Fresno middle school in decades, needs teachers who reflect the ethnic and racial background of its students.Crozier and others were dismayed to learn the person hired to teach the school's three cultural studies classes is white. District officials initially considered hiring a teacher of color, she said, but ultimately hired Peter Beck, a former teacher at Hoover High School.People at the gathering said the new school, which is the first southwest Fresno middle school in decades, needs teachers who reflect the ethnic and racial background of its students.Crozier and others were dismayed to learn the person hired to teach the school's three cultural studies classes is white.

Should a teachers race be a consideration in teaching cultural studies classes?
 
I always kind of thought education and teaching experience should be the deciding factor there...?
 
 
 
I definitely get the point that (in general) teachers should reflect the population they're teaching and school systems should strive to hire more black and latino teachers, esp in areas where those minorities are prevalent... but that's really a separate issue.

Silk-Leaf-by-Julian-Melchiorri_dezeen_01

 

 

 

 

Royal College of Art graduate Julian Melchiorri has created the first man-made, biologically functional leaf that takes in carbon dioxide, water, and light and releases oxygen. The leaf consists of chloroplasts -- the part of a plant cell where photosynthesis happens -- suspended in body made of silk protein.   "This material has an amazing property of stabilizing (the chloroplast) organelles," Melchiorri says in the video below. "As an outcome I have the first photosynthetic material that is living and breathing as a leaf does."
