It's nevertheless telling that a course like this gets attention from the press. This shows just how far behind we are in an area that is so vital to our well being as a country.
I myself am currently teaching a course like this in my department titled, "Race and Ethnicity in the Schools"—and have been for years. My students, many of them who are former teachers, invariably say, "Why am I just barely learning this?" "This could have really helped me when I was a teacher."
Insufficiently appreciated is how taking courses like these can make such a massive difference in students' lives—and as a consequence, in schools and society. So happy for TCU!
