When Students of Color Have White Teachers

Close to half the kids in America’s public schools are students of color. But the overwhelming majority of teachers are white. In Philadelphia, educators at John B. Stetson Charter School are trying to take culturally relevant approach to their classrooms.

Reporter Yowei Shaw went to Stetson to find out what kind of impact this approach is having on students of color.

This story comes from Raise Up, a project of Youth Speaks in collaboration with the Association of Independents in Radio, funding by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting as part of American Graduate.
