A White Teacher Talks about Race
Veteran teacher Julie Landsman leads the reader through a day of teaching and reflection about her work with high school students who are from a variety of cultures. She speaks honestly about issues of race, poverty, institutional responsibility, and white privilege by engaging the reader in the experiences of a day in the classroom with some of her remarkable students. Throughout the day, we meet bigotry head-on, struggle with questions of racial identity, and find cultural conflict in the corridors of the school building. Along the way, we come face to face with Tyrone, a young African-American student grappling with the realities of discrimination in suburbia. We encounter Sheila, a teenage mother struggling to raise her baby in poverty, and we get to know Sarah, a white girl living on the streets of Minneapolis. Through the author's eyes, we begin to understand the complexities of teaching in today's society and we learn within the pages of this book, if only just for a moment, what it feels like to be the other.

I picked up this book because I know the women who wrote it from a writer's group I'm a part of on the northside of Minneapolis. The book is about her work in the Minneapolis public schools. Having worked with a similar population (high school students) in a different state and now living in Minneapolis, and being interested in the topic, I figured the book was right up my alley. I'm not a teacher, but I have a passion for addressing the injustices in our education system. The book is structured as going through one school day with chapters titles like "First Hour" and "After School". Landsman talks about individual students that she works with and choosing a handful that serve as representations of many other students in similar positions (The single mother, homeless teenager, ex-gang banger, white youth from a predominately black community). She captures the struggle of teaching and the emotion that goes into it beautifully. Even if your not interested in teaching, Landsman's approach to the discussion or race is refreshing and eye-opening. The education system is a great back drop for the discussion, but her thoughts and stories are universally applicable. I'm definitely going to read another one of her books before the year is out.
Review: A White Teacher Talks about RaceUser Review - Goodreads
I didn't like this one so I gave up after a few chapters. I tried to like it, I wanted to like it, but I didn't. The font was small and I didn't really care for the author, so that combined just couldn't get me through it.
