“Regardless of a family’s social class, racial or ethnic background, or a child’s grade level, consistent homework help almost never improved test scores or grades.”

Parental Involvement Is Overrated - NYTimes.com - NYTimes.com

It’s easy to over-trumpet pieces that already support one’s way of thinking. I fully own my bias. But I STILL think this is an important read.

“While experts purport to “help” parents by telling us exactly how to interact with our kids, actually that avalanche of advice undermines the idea that maybe, just maybe, we could be decent parents without intensive tutoring.”

“White supremacy does not contradict American democracy—it birthed it, nurtured it, and financed it. That is our heritage. It was reinforced during 250 years of bondage. It was further reinforced during another century of Jim Crow. It was reinforced again when progressives erected an entire welfare state on the basis of black exclusion. It was reinforced again when the intellectual progeny of the same people who excluded black women from welfare turned around and inveighed against it through caricaturization of black women.”

Ta-Nehisi Coates, "Other People’s Pathologies"
