Christopher Emdin is an education professor who speaks to building relationships with students by better understanding the emotional, physical and cultural context in which they live. His article, How Can White Teachers Do Better by Urban Kids of Color, speaks to the dichotomy in which we advocate for equity and achievement and at the same time dismiss the valuable life experience of each student. This is particularly relevant as Minnesota seeks to expand the diversity among teachers.
