Why Are All the Teachers White?

In a discussion on the National Council of Teachers of English forum, Deborah Morrison asked, “Why Are All the Teachers White?” I share her comments here with her permission.


So what's a white girl, (or guy) to do?

I am a native of Tucson, Arizona, was educated in the public school system and university system here, and teach at the Community College here.  I am white.  I am surrounded by a wonderful ethnic and racial diversity of students everyday.  In fact, being white makes me the minority in most situations every day.
