In this episode, we talk to Baltimore City Schools CEO Dr. Sonja Santelises about the phenomenon she calls “educational redlining”. Sonja explains how differences in student outcomes are often caused by inequity in teaching technique– that especially in classrooms of black students, teachers spend too much time modeling problems and not enough time allowing students to struggle for solutions.
We discuss the obstacles to achievement that students currently face, how teachers are not allowing students to think for themselves, and how educational redlining affects students’ college readiness.
