Not sure you were replying to my post or not, but I want to clarify...I didn't say we are equal and the same...just the opposite. EVERYONE learns differently and teachings should be tailored to that person's learning style. When I said "we're all in the same boat here" I was referring to making adjustments to accommodate the different ways in which each learns, no matter race, culture, etc.

Maybe I'm naive, but when the author states "As the parent of two black boys I know firsthand that white teachers can excel at teaching black children" , is he/she saying that black children learn differently than other races? If that is the case, isn't that the same as, say, having a child who is gifted or having a child with special needs and needing to adjust the way he/she is taught? We are all in the same boat here, no matter the race we were born into.
