This book gave me a clear understanding of what it means to be anti-racist. Through my white privilege (even coming from a working-class family) I have a voice in changing policies that limit the ability of other people. As an educator, this book has challenged me to think about the education system and reflect on the educational practices and expectations that were born from a white person’s perspective. I am looking at my own instructional practices and trying to understand where my students are, their background, and if I am meeting THEIR needs.
