Re: “Too Hot for School?

Im from East Oakland. I went to Mills. Head Royce. King Estates Middle & Brookfield Elementary. Now that we have the cited authority out of the way. 1. White people are intimidated by Chavis because he teaches the way a Black momma doesn't mind disciplining her child in the street. Loudly,aggressively and without remorse. 2. Some of Chavis behavior, I don't agree with, (then againm there is a whole lot of sh*t going on in East Oakland that I don't agree with. HOWEVER, as a current law student, there is NOTHING MORE HARMFULL THAN OPENLY AND EXPRESSIVELY TELLING YOUR STUDENTs THAT YOU DON"T BELIEVE IN THEM. CONVERSELY THERE ARE VERY FEW THINGS MORE POWERFUL than a teacher/administrator that in their students. I AM STILL DEALING WITH THE "SOFT RACISM of LOW EXPECTATIONS" and IM pretty f*cking resilient. Trust. Chavis believes in his students and the Children perform. Its called the Halo Effect, Google it. 3. Imagine an Oakland with Ten Chavis Schools. Our babies would GET INTO BERKELEY, UCLA, and PEPPERDINE, WITHOUT AFFIRMATIVE ACTION. IMAGINE THAT!
