THE SOFT BIGOTRY OF LOW

THE SOFT BIGOTRY OF LOW EXPECTATIONS: Joanne Jacobs writes:

This is mind-boggling. Writing in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Marquis Harris, a black college graduate with excellent credentials, says he was rejected for a high school teaching job for being too articulate.

Be sure to read Harris’ rejection letter. Yes, God forbid we have articulate teachers in our classrooms. Students might actually…learn. And become…articulate themselves.

No, that’s far, far too much to ask of them. Think (as that cliche of the mid-’90s went) of the children.
