Brotha Brian Favors- Master Teacher and Activist Says:

<<Many well-meaning educators in today's schools simply are not prepared to address the specific educational needs of Black and Brown students.  This lack of preparation is directly related to the growing achievement gap and high drop-out rates that we see everyday. 

It is no coincidence that most educators have never taken a single course that focuses on the various sociological and psychological issues that our youth bring to the classroom.

Those who have studied and implemented African centered and/or alternative curricula know that we can reverse these negative trends and inspire youth to be critical thinking, life-long learners. The BTC Culturally Responsive Teaching class is a great resource for educators looking for innovative ways to engage our youth and to cultivate culturally responsive and academically stimulating learning environments.
