The school board should give me the $300K they're spending on this baloney. Here's the answer -- it's socio-economics. It has nothing to do with skin color, biases or any other popular buzzwords. It all comes down to the ability of parents to give their kids a stable home with an emphasis on education. The school district cannot solve a larger social issue.

Race is biological - Ethnicity is cultural identity.
Each race has its cultural, each ethnicity has its race.

There are free online courses on inclusion and diversity.

"The US Army will remove photographs of candidates in promotion board part of an effort to address why so many Black officers are being passed over in favor of their white counterparts...the removal of the photos by the military's largest service is a tacit acknowledgement of how much race still plays a part in decisions about who should advance."

This is the real world; students are not getting prepared for it.
A typical job interview question (s).

After several questions and answers.
What has changed since you entered this room?
