Drawing on his own experience of feeling undervalued and invisible in classrooms as a young man of color, and merging his experiences with more than a decade of teaching and researching in urban America, award-winning educator Christopher Emdin offers a new lens on an approach to teaching and learning in urban schools. He begins by taking to task the perception of urban youth of color as unteachable, and he challenges educators to embrace and respect each student's culture.
"A must have for urban teachers"
"Why Black Men Quit Teaching" is from the August 28, 2016 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Christopher Emdin and narrated by Fleet Cooper.
