“It’s rare to find an African-American male who is trained in Montessori education. As a teacher… I’m glad my students can look at me and say there are other images of what a black man looks like.
The other day I had a student who noticed that all the pictures of evolution depict Caucasian looking men… she asked me – ‘Where are the women? Why are all the images of men?’ And if she as a white girl can’t see herself in that curriculum, how can that young Asian kid or black boy see themselves in that curriculum?”
