My friends at NOPE need to broaden their scope of fraud reveals.
It’s right for equity advocates to focus attention on the students deemed needier. At the same time, they shouldn’t allow their advocacy to mean other students aren’t likely to need support too.
It should be shocking that middle-class educators with college degrees and above average occupational benefits trade in these hasty, dehumanizing generalizations. Even you the reader might harbor similar classist illusions of the stereotypical low-income parent who passively allows their kids to be redlined into the dark underbelly of public schools.
Social media outrage about blackface stories doesn’t carry the same weight as focusing on endemic problems that blight the lives of children and steal their growing years. If anything, obsessions with the trivial is little more than intellectual drift, and that is the worst sin for conscious people.
