And, of course, the school is evaluating me on my Track 3 class. What’s a Track 3 class? Where they stick the low-income and POC kids. It’s based off of academic performance and ability. Tracking kids doesn’t improve learning. It only increases inequity. And technically it’s unconstitutional. Okay, look. They gave me five weeks of teacher training before I went into a classroom. I am trying my hardest. But unlike my honors students who show up every day eager to learn, my Track 3 class just doesn’t do their homework and they don’t pay attention. I try, but it’s like they just don’t care. I mean, if you’re treated as intellectually less-than from day one, why would you believe in yourself or bother trying?
