There are a lot of…school districts plagued by structural hurdles out of their control and doing a miserable job responding to the adversity.
San Antonio-area teacher Matthew Lynde Chesnut, writing for the Rivard Report
Matthew teaches in what he describes, baldly, as an “apartheid district”—“deprived by design.” One can’t help but be inspired by his response to this inequity, though. He goes back to work, to help these kids in the best way he knows how.
The rest of us need to get to work fixing the broken structures that are failing teachers like Matthew and the kids he teaches.
