Eliminating Racism in Education Saves Bad Teachers

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Superintendents and union leaders continue their debate on firing bad teachers. Superintendents know that it is their duty to provide children with the best resources possible that will enhance their education. One of those resources includes providing children with the best teachers possible.
Dismissing a bad teacher for causes associated with racism in education is negligible. In fact, firing a teacher because he or she cannot teach is rare. According to an article titled ‘Firing Bad Teachers: A Superintendent and a Teacher’s Union Official Debate’, 80% of the dismissals in the Los Angeles Unified District that were upheld, had nothing to do with classroom performance.

While Dr. Dr. John E. Deasy, Superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District and Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers which is a separate entity from the California Teacher’s Association debated a lawsuit against the state’s tenure, layoff and termination rules, the real debate should be the perpetual tradition of racism in education that hinders student classroom performance across all lines of ethnicity.

Classroom performance is the pinnacle for educating students and racism in education should be a primary factor that determines whether a teacher is mediocre or excellent. An excellent teacher will have an awareness of the different racial tendencies of all of his or her students.

Because of eliminating racism in education, teachers have the ability to enhance the education of all students, which includes American Indian, Asian, Black, Hispanic, and White. This also provides administrators a different measurement for teacher effectiveness.

Teachers who eliminate racism in education have a primary focus on enhancing the education level and the student as a whole. Because they are experiencing classroom success they are less likely to become involved in activities considered detrimental to children or their career. Also, they are less likely to focus on sexual abuse and lewd behavior. As a result of their success, they are more likely to focus on the business of education and classroom performance.

Can we save bad teachers by eliminating racism in education?

About Classroom Racism Exterminator

Racism is a menace and so we’ve been taught for ages which is the primary need for a diversity expert. However, even in this modern society of today where we see a lot of colored celebrities performing on stage with huge fan followings and of course an Afro-America President for the USA, we are still in a phase where racism exists in all its brutal glory and has been eating away at the society like a plague. Classrooms, are one of the most affected areas where color differences and racism exists to its extremes. Even after decades of progress and a lot of communal efforts at bridging the gaps between colored students, white students and teachers, it is sad to say that the disparities still exist and are just as pronounced today as they were back in the 1950s. Colored students, even in the likes of New York City, are attending under resourced schools or have been significantly isolated and made to be unequal in regular schools. Even if the teachers are well-intentioned, perpetuating the structural racism that has taken deep roots into the fabric of our education system is a tough task and make the need for a diversity expert imperative. Teachers need to recognize the biases that exist within the classroom and also take conscious measures to address them and their own biases of course. James Baldwin once said, “it is your very own responsibility to change this society, if you think of yourself as an educated person.” Dr. Derrick L. Campbell took this quote very effectively and straight to the heart and thus this Classroom Racism Exterminator happened. Classroom Racism Exterminator is an initiative that will teach you about your duty and moral obligation towards eliminating racism from the classrooms. This is where and how you will learn about what you need to do to produce a better society that is free of biases and disparities amongst the blacks and the whites. Because we understand how classroom biases and conversations about racism are difficult and how teachers and students almost avoid the topics altogether, we have put together a range of effective methods and products to help address the problem at hand and talk meaningfully to counter issues related to race and racism in the classroom. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell understands that it takes a lot of courage to talk about race and racism and that racial issues need to be viewed through a very critical lens that can understand and attend to the pertaining aspects of racism in the classroom. And therefore through this website we have made a conscious effort to eliminate racism from the classroom and make the educational system equal and beneficial for all. We know and we understand that there are no words that can actually describe how racism feels. There are cases and everybody tends to deal with it in their own manner. Some might lash out verbally or others might just withdraw into shells. Whatever the case, people don’t talk about it openly and teachers don’t really make a conscious effort at addressing the issue. We don’t really know if our children or if the youth is learning to be educated or become racists in their classroom. Our program is focused on helping children of color and regardless of their race, their full potential. We want every student to be able to recognize and reach their full potential so that they think of themselves as responsible citizens of their country and not regard themselves as worthless human beings. Here you will find motivational books and flash card games, all of which have been designed focusing on eliminating racism completely from our classrooms. The books and the games have been consciously designed keeping in mind the American society and educational system. It is a small effort on our and Dr. Campbell’s part to help this society become a better place to live in. A little about diversity expert Dr. Campbell Dr. Derrick L.
