Should North Shore public schools set lower academic, discipline standards for black and hispanic students? Activist to make the case. – North Cook News
In two presentations at Elm Place Middle School, 2031 Sheridan Rd., Noguera will explain why he believes public school teachers should stop focusing on overall student achievement and instead pursue what he calls “equity,” or ensuring students of different races and ethnicities in their schools are achieving at the same level.
Noguera believes racially-biased teachers are to blame for the fact that white students consistently outperform black and hispanic students on standardized tests.
