Something subcutaneous is going on in the education establishment.
Anybody else getting the feeling that there’s some deliberate initiative going on under the skin of public education that we only see here and there when it bursts out into a blemish? Here’s one such pimple, from Timothy Duffy, who is the head of the state association for school committees:
Most teachers are white. Most students aren't. https://t.co/1djropayMv

Duffy’s association exists to advocate for the unique interests of Rhode Island’s school committees. Whether or not you agree with me that such organizations are harmful to the civic health of our state, perhaps you’ll join me in wondering how harping on the race comparisons of teachers and students serves Duffy’s clients.
I bet there are some very interesting communications floating around that would only be included in an Access to Public Records Act request by accident.
