Popular opinion says men of color don’t teach and the statistics don’t defy it. Only 2% of all teachers nationally are men of color. We want our fellows to turn the profession on its head by entering the classroom and using their ability to communicate and relate to the students they teach everyday. We meet teachers everyday who demonstrate that men of color can and do teach. We have to show more men, regardless, of what the masses say they have an ability to reach at-risk students that defies the current demographic in front the classroom and the vision of what success looks like to students.
