Okay, I have a question for my wonderful black and "non-black" colleagues. Do you study black history, native american history, asian american history, women's history,etc during specified times or all year long??
When it comes to a particular race or culture, do you study that group if they are NOT represented in your class? Be honest. I have often wondered if teachers who teach in a school that has little to no minorites study or celebrate diversity the way those of us who work in all black or mixed environments have to??
Not trying to be mean or disrespectful of anyone. Please answer honestly. I have worked in all black schools and worked in a half black/half hispanic school and at that school we had to celebrate Hispanic Heritage, Native American Heritage and Black History. So I am just curious to know.
