12/29/07 - A California Teacher Says English Language Development Should Be On Students Time, Not Part Of The Regular School Day

I offer my short story about my introduction to sensitivity training.

In the mid-1990s I was a teacher in a large California school district.

I attended mandated diversity classes at the administrative offices for several days along with some other teachers from my school.

At one point, our instructor showed us a map of the world on the wall. She stated that Africa was depicted out of scale, too small, because of racism.

I pointed out the map was a Mercator Projection representing the true scale "of the oceans" because it was a navigation map and the land masses were incidental.

That ended our discussion.
