The Burden of Being ‘On Point’: Too often, traumatized Black boys’ behavior is pathologized. It’s actually rational. is a very important article appearing at The Atlantic today, written by Adam Harris.
It gave me a lot to think about.
It’s a valuable complement to three other pieces I’ve recently revisited:
Connecting Black Boys and Their Families with School and Success from The Teaching Channel.
Supporting Black Boys to Thrive At School is from Embrace Race.
Four Ways Teachers Can Support Students of Color is from Cult of Pedagogy.
