Thoughts of an Urban Teacher... What do you do when students’ say “ I Think I Am Worthless”, “Shut the Fu.. Up”, “I Am Afraid of Donald Trump”, I Didn’t Eat Last Night”, “Fu..ing Bald Headed Mother Fu..er” and “I Want to Be An Engineer?”
R. Grant writes a powerful realization of the why and how of the Urban teacher. His mastery and lifetime dedication to inner city education identifies the social impact and struggle the urban teacher faces. In a world where the unfair distribution of academic resources plaguing young learners and traps both teacher and student as victims of a post-modern Jim Crow.
