Black Teachers Wanted
"America is becoming more and more diverse every year and that means our schools are also also seeing increasing numbers of students of color but the trend isn't necessarily reflected in teachers across the country. Black students and other students of color rarely see the teachers who look like them and that can have serious consequences for their education and their future for the beginning of black history month. We wanted to play you. An episode from our archives that goes into the history of black teachers in America why gaps and representation among teachers persist to this day and what we can do to address this issue. Hi I'm Lizzie. Does he get era and misses the scholars strategy networks. No jargon each week we discussed an American policy problem with one of the nation's top researchers without jargon and and in this episode I spoke to Dr Michelle Foster. She's a professor. And the Henri Hauser Endowed Chair in urban partnerships at the University of Louisville and a former teacher in the Boston public school system. Here's our conversation Dr Foster thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for asking asking me. So you've conducted a lot of research on teaching but before that you were in the classroom yourself. Where did you start teaching? Well I started teaching in and the Boston public schools before desegregation which was in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and so the first year. I was a system wide substitute teacher which meant I taught in almost all of the schools. That would be in Boston. That would have you. That would have me and sometimes the schools that where I could manage. oftentimes the principal would come at recess. And if I was still there he said can you come. I'm back tomorrow because as you know. Substitutes often have difficulty with some classrooms and urban schools and then the second year I was a teacher at the William Monroe Charter school which was one of the first magnet schools in Boston. And can you tell US quickly. What a what is a magnet school? A magnet schools were schools that usually had themes And they were designed to help ease desegregation to have programs that might be a program in music. What theater with the idea that you would attract voluntarily Ellen Terry Lee attract white students to attend thereby making it easier to desegregate and Boston had magnet schools before actually the court order in nineteen seventy four? Lots of Cities Louisville has a magnet program. So I had a three four five combination at the charter school. which is we're not too far from where I lived? And then the next year I had a job. As a fifth grade teacher at the champlain. School which was in Dorchester. And tell me more about those experiences. What was that like working in the Boston? Public school system during that time. Well that was a time. When Boston didn't necessarily hire hire black or African American teachers black teachers tended to be segregated in predominantly African American or black schools? Boston would often have overcrowded. African American school bus them passed a under cry and under crowded white school to another overcrowded. Black school the charter school was of a magnet school. So it was is racially mixed but the champlain. School was probably predominantly baby. Ninety nine percent African American there was a school across way which was the John Marshall School and the schools were segregate they were in a cluster of schools. But the John Marshall's which was across Washington street at the time was predominantly white and my school was predominantly African American. We it was like today day. We have very few supplies not many many books. Hence Loretta Premium No Playground equipment was a place. Where if you want to be a successful teacher you had to be creative? And it's one of the places I learned. I think to be a good teacher. you know. If you don't have textbooks textbooks are good but you can do a lots of things if you don't have them so one of the things I used to do is take the textbook and cut up the story the reading story and put on cards and hand them out to the kids and then I read the first paragraph and I say who is that the next one and that solve off two problems one. If you've ever taught you realize kids don't follow along so they never really know what page you're on that solve. That problem and I realized later on that I was teaching sequencing using because in order to know what comes next. You have to listen so it is possible with not a lot of equipment or supplies to be creative in your teaching but but of course you have to WanNa be wanna be creative and I had not been prepared as a teacher you know. I didn't study teaching so I was left to my own devices. But what I thought would make sense for kids and part of my principal was to have them excited. I felt like if you came to school every day. It was like Christmas. was you'd WanNa come so of course. I was probably not your typical teacher and and I think that my kids probably made too much noise. The principal would always be knocking on my door as they were noisy. Because in those days I suppose even today silence and comportment comportment looking like your on task. Whatever that means? You'll you'll pay attention is kind of rules the day. But I wasn't that kind of a teacher. I would run and have racist with the kids. I would play kickball where I would throw the ball. And then the kids would have to give a multiplication table and they'd have to answer it and then kick so I tried to combine the physical Cole with intellectual. I had all kinds of little tricks that I did. I suppose even as a college teacher later on I have some of those. And how did those early experiences in the classroom GonNa Affect your later research. The research questions you wanted to explore. I don't think I thought too much about that. Initially it wasn't until I laid Iran. Iran started my academic and my first job was at University of Pennsylvania. And I would ask you to summer school courses and I decided to teach teachers perspectives on teaching. You know I just. I just thought it was a two week course. I went decide. I would use autobiographies or biographies of teachers on their own practice. And when I looked into the literature I found very few Accounts of black teachers about their own practice and so. I thought this is unusual because I knew enough to know that for most of history black students have been taught by black teachers right. I knew that so I was shot that there were no. They were not more accounts of their practice. Because I found a few and it on the basis of that. I decided that I would do a study that looked at life histories of black African American teachers. And that's how I got into that area I was led into it just circumstantially. It was not something I had planned to look at. And so tell us about what you found then. Well one of the things I was interested in was what were the experiences of black teachers and I was particularly looking at teachers who were who started. Arctic teaching before desegregation I knew the desegregation was a pivotal moment in the education of African American students. I didn't know what I find and so the earliest teacher who was the oldest oldest was born in one thousand nine five. She taught in polly's island South Carolina. And then I found teachers to a process I called community nomination which was to ask S. communities I made up that term made it up to nominate teachers who they thought were particularly successful and so I went around the country Texas I went to Missouri. Glory and these teachers and then for many many years I wrote academic articles about them. You know just what the teachers had to say was kind of used in the service service of making better big points in a lot of points and then at some point someone. The new press actually asked me if I would write a book and I wrote a book called Black Teachers on teaching and that was like I was ninety. Seven with a twenty interviews are actually you know not condemn not cut up their whole interviews and many of these teachers would teach who started in in segregated schools in Texas and then made the transition to working in the newly integrated desegregated schools in the south. So that's story that I I was pleased because later on many young African American teachers who came of age nineties and two thousands read that book and many of them have commented that the situation that I just got different than what they are today. So you have worked as a teacher both before and after desegregation you have studied sort of that transition and what. It's looked like for other teachers across the country. Let's talk about the situation right now. Do you know enough about the typical sort of American teacher. Fair to say what that person kind of looks like on average today. You know we do know that there are more male teachers at high school than Elementary School. Most of the teachers at elementary the are women and as it turns out. They are white women from suburban and rural communities who teach the population of teach of African American teachers. It has not changed that much over time. In fact I was at a conference not too long ago and although the numbers are increasing in other words number of people afterward teachers will be coming candidates and going into teaching positions. They have the highest attrition rate. They ended up leaving in greater numbers numbers than other teachers. And I think there are some reasons for that. Of course you know one of the reasons is that they often get assigned to the most difficult teaching conditions. I mean let's the honest people want African American teachers because I think that they will be good for African American children. And there's no doubt that that's probably the case but you know if they end up in a school whether or no supplies wear. There are a lot of difficulties and they're not going to likely to stay especially if they don't have support to make it so although we know that the number of African American churches increasing we also know that the number of relieving actually not even lasting three years is also increasing. So it's been a zero sum game. The numbers have not increased appreciably that much because of that and then let's talk about the benefits to students. What are the good things that having a teacher who may be looks like you and your community can afford to students? Well for a long time. People had this idea that was just the role model argument. The reason that African American children in a benefit of having african-american role model then in two thousand three. I think it was a man. Whose name is Thomas? D actually wrote a wrote an article. What he had done he looked at some old studies? Are these that had randomly assigned students and teachers which is very rare in education research. Because you can't resign randomly assigned teachers and students but there was one study and he realized it one of the things he found. Is that where you had a teacher match. When you had a black students who had black teachers have teachers? They actually improved in their standardized test scores scores and of course he had a hard time publishing it. Partly because you know sometimes things that can be positive and also have negative kickback. People thought what would happen if if if we could say that matching teacher and student on race was a good thing. I mean you could use that negatively as well so he was the first person to write that article and then recently there have been more articles that have come out that have shown that African American students who have African American teachers are more likely to graduate graduate. They're less likely to be suspended or punished. punitively they're more likely to be assigned to gifted and talented less likely to go to special the lead and a host of other

"So probably sixty to seventy percent of my job is I'm a culinary producer. Which means we know we're going to do shoot. How are we gonna make that shoot happen? Do have the recipe. How long is it gonna take to make the recipe who's gonna make the recipe? What do they need to make the recipe ingredients and equipment wise? What's gonna be the pacing of the day? How much can we get done where? Or is happening. How do I get all the stuff they're all of those logistical questions? So it sounds like that sort of it's like the TV producer role that you had seen any TV production. But all centered around food. Yes. Because we have a producer too. So I'm just focusing on the culinary part. But when you're working for food brand like petite curious, that's really important part. And then kind of part three is a food stylist. That's partly that's part three for some people. That's their whole career. Yes. And I had that has been my whole career in the past and often if you're watching a show I've worked on some shows for food network cooking channel or even like the chew of they have a Kohner producer. And if Silas, but I'm doing both. And the food stylist is the person who's like, okay, where am I going to find the most beautifully ripe Plum in the dead of winter, or where am I going to get fresh curry leaves or you know, what kind of swaps? Do we need for the show? Meaning what we need to make an advance. If we're making chocolate cake. We don't want to wait around for Tobago and cool and all of that. So usually, you know, make something the day before. So we have the magic of TV. They don't kick Sardi done quickens, the production process feeds it along. So you said that at one point you were justified style or I shouldn't say just because that's a big job to itself. It sounds like it's sort of just one thing piled onto another. But you start off as a food stylist. I guess was that kind of your the beginnings of your career or no, no, okay. Well, I can start by saying I've always been a very visual person. So I went to like an arts magnet high school and studied visual art, then I went to college, I studied photography, and I moved to New York one. Wanting to work in the photo industry of some kind or for a magazine waited tables finally landed a job at Vanity Fair worked in the arch apartment and start to learn photo production. That's when the production stuff started. And I left that job to work for photographer named Marc Seliger who does a lot of celebrity and fashion a ton of music stuff. So I worked for him as a producer for several years. And at that point, I got really interested in the idea of food media and kind of shifting from like the celebrity world, which was like Vanity Fair, and Mark and going more to the food side. What made you decide that you'd had enough of celebrities and like just like food sexy. I mean food is basically the sexiest thing that you can shoot now. But what sparked that I had a lifelong interest in food and even like worked in the kitchen of a restaurant in college and kind of dreams of going to culinary school? But you know, decided just to continue down that photography route. Out but working with celebrities can be a little bit frustrating. Okay. As definitely from the standpoint of a producer. So sorta your job to deal with all their shit. Right. Yeah. The schedules and the tardy knows all of those things I figured all right? A plate of spaghetti is going to be there on time. It's going to sit there as long as you needed to. And then if you need another one you can just bring fresh on. Unlike a Kardashian, you can guarantee that -solutely tomatoes. Okay. So sell us.

"Join the conversation. Beazer students who are upperclassmen at Whitney young magnet high school in Chicago. I'm Alexander Swain. I'm a junior, I'm sixteen. I'm got Lena attaches, I'm seventeen I'm a senior Kenyan Sola on a photo. She I'm seventeen I'm a senior the girls were a lot like a young, Michelle. Obama might have been hyper prepared great grade school leadership titled at the ready for their college applications and even today Obama brought a copy of the book loaded with brightly colored posted I still not ready to like right in it. And the students were equally prepared with carefully crafted questions my foot in the black world, and then the white world being biracial multiple highly ranked institutions that it's my responsibility to change their primarily white like every day you wake up, and there is something new that happens. It kind of throws you off balance. What did going to a magnet school means? They travel from vastly different parts of the city. They have different family backgrounds. And circumstances. Mrs Obama says she experienced the same thing, and it was one of the first big transitions of her life. You know, one of the things going to Whitney young was that that was the first time, I really met black Bush people, you know, black professionals in a kids who had traveled the world in gone skiing and had professional parents. We grew up in a working class neighborhood. And it took me a while to sort of understand that there was even a whole nother world of black people. You know, one of my best friends was Jesse Jackson's daughter, and that was a whole different culture of being politically active in marching in. You know, doing things that the Robinsons on yooglie avenue leeward, just listening to jazz and hanging out. And we knew what we knew another formative moment going to Princeton, the young women in this room black by racial and Latino had questions about that time in the life of the first lady because she writes about a sense of isolation that they understood that they. Might feel as they entered majority white campuses. You're not always dealing with like a kind of overt racism. I mean, I think there's a section in the book where you mentioned the fact about your your roommate at Princeton who changed rooms unbeknownst to you. Because her parents had concerns about having a black roommate which didn't come out until you were on the campaign trail, right? This is not even something. Did you feel that at the time? Yeah. You know what I didn't feel that? But I felt distant from her could you describe the students at Princeton is being poppy seeds in a bowl of rice was really very stark description, and that your response to it was to overperform. Yeah. Well, when you come from a school where your own guidance counselor tells you you're not good enough. There's just that little seed of doubt that somebody says. Yeah, you not quite ready. Yeah. That they're picked to provide exactly that they're quick to provide. When you're you know, you're thinking, my GPA, pretty good. I was walking around Whitney young thinking, I'm pretty I was the senior class treasurer. I was at the top of the class. Why would you say that? So while I overcame that. I pushed through that and apply it anyway, you inner with doubt. Right. You inner with I have something to prove obviously and approved to my own high school, and maybe they were right. So you go in with a feeling like, Well, I I certainly can't not show up. I've gotta prove to these people that I belong here. There are echoes of this in how she talks about her experience in the White House her reaction to President Obama's reelection. Was that America had answered a question. Are we good enough? Yes. We are in this period of her life is also where the main theme of the book comes into play. Michelle Obama calls herself a box checker. She someone who likes things in an orderly way. But over and over again, she's drawn to people who did not live their lives that way. I call it making your swerve. And some of it happened because I met people who aren't box checkers in. I had a good roommate that she was carefree and she love love. She was Jamaican. And she she was Suzanne Suzanne was would she win in as a pre med because both of her parents were doctors, and she decided don't wanna be premed. It's too hard. So she switched her major. And I was like what are you doing is like that wasn't fun for me anymore? But then I lost. Suzanne Suzanne died. Suddenly she was in her twenty s and shortly thereafter. I lost my father, and I write about that. And then somewhere in there, I met this really weird guy named Barack Obama who was swerving all over the place. And he he didn't he didn't have gone swerve. It's check. He didn't have anything. Right. So that was a culmination of loss and realization and growth and just a wake up call for me. And I thought to myself if I died today. Is this where I wanna be? Then it wasn't just one thing. It was a few things that made me step back and say all right put down the boxes and the checks, and now you have to do the hard work of thinking about who you want to become she, of course, became first lady a transition that wasn't easy, but her description of politics as mean and her insistence that she would not run for office herself. Drew this question from senior Kenyan Sola? Unofficial. She for one. What gives you hope, and what helps you to continue to have hope, and my advice, would you give to people who do really care about the world and the future of our country of our city, but feel like there are so many things to think about so many things to focus on every single day. Well, first of all young people like you give me hope because here's the thing that does happen. Each generation does get better. That's why I always want to invest in young people because the future is yours. You know, the the the country that's being created. Now is the one you will raise your children in. So we need you in gauged and involved. So my advice is don't be discouraged. You know, there have been harder times in our nation's history than this. So I do want you all to do the work to find your passion because you will have the greatest impact if you're doing something that you believe in and that you care about you may have to do a little box checking like me, but you will be far more effective. If you're checking boxes and thinking about what you value. So be encouraged be incredibly encouraged because I'm encouraged every time I need young people. I feel like okay,.
