Over 80% of teachers in the U.S. are white. But most don’t know that their whiteness matters. TWW seeks to move the conversation forward on how to be consciously, intentionally, anti-racist in the classroom. Because "white" does not mean a blank slate. It is a set of assumptions that is the baseline from which everything is judged; it is what passes for normal. This means if you are not white or don’t adhere to those assumptions, you are abnormal or less than. TWW wants to have conversations about those assumptions: what they are, how they impact our students, and how we can confront our assumptions to promote racial literacy.

Excellent material

This is an excellent resource to begin thinking about how being white matters as a teacher. Along with the website it is a must listen for all white teachers.

Cultural Marxism K-12

80% of grade school teachers are white. 87% of students are not black.

White teachers should not have to “blackify” the classroom, in hopes the 13% can learn.

Leftist nonsense.

Teach them to read, write and speak properly English, to add, multiple and divide. Civics. Real history.

Leftist indoctrination of victim ideologies is child abuse.

Not just for teachers!

As a white parent involved in school equity work, I can't recommend this podcast more highly. Very well-edited and always thought-provoking. My only complaint is that they don't do episodes often enough!
