Tucker Carlson’s cameras in the classroom proposal will harm both students and teachers

Paradoxically, while Carlson, Lowry, and other conservatives profess to see teachers as leftist ideologues secretly indoctrinating students behind closed classroom doors, the fact is that, under federal law, the public is already able to come in and observe classes. School administrators and district officials have the same right. Nobody is hiding anything. What we are trying to do is meet the needs of our students. The student bodies of public school districts in major cities are overwhelmingly black and brown. Issues such as police brutality, the wealth gap, housing inequality, mass incarceration and the school-to-prison pipeline, the lack of healthcare, living-wage jobs, and childcare, and others, are important to them. And you can’t talk about these problems without discussing race. These issues are our students’ reality. They’re what concerns them. What kind of educators would we be if we ignored this?
