We are joined by:
We were moved the NY Times articles and the issues they raise. Many of us teach students similar to Dasani, and this Times series gives us a great opportunity to talk about the issues that students like her present in our classrooms.
This is our third conversation about Dasani and students who face similar challenges, and what it’s like to be teachers in schools with students facing the challenges of poverty. Also see:
