Finding The Diamond In All Experiences
We all make so called mistakes in life. What appears to be a bad situation or experience actually contains a very profound lesson/diamond that if found would enrich our lives. We have been taught that experience is the best teacher. This is not necessarily true. We can repeatedly experience similar situations and not learn what's needed to finally break the cycle. We say that in every experience, good, bad or ugly, that there is a lesson/diamond that if found will catapult us to a new level of awareness/state of being.
"Closing achievement gaps is a critical issue. The performance of Blacks is systematically different from that of other racial and ethnic groups. Decreasing gaps in student achievement means that we must increase the learning gains of Blacks."
- National Education Association
"The gap between teachers and students of color continues to grow. Over the past three years, the demographic divide between teachers and students of color has increased by 3 percentage points, and today, students of color make up almost half of the public school population. But teachers of color are just 18 percent of the teaching profession."
- Center for American Progress
"African-American students, particularly males, are far more likely to be suspended or expelled from school than their peers. Black students make up 18% of the students in the CRDC sample, but 35% of the students suspended once, and 39% of the students expelled."
