Critical Acclaim for We Can’t Teach What We Don’t Know!
"More teachers need to read this book, more schools need to make sure it is in their libraries, and more schools of education need to include it in their reading lists."
—From the Foreword by Sonia Nieto, University of Massachusetts at Amherst
“Gary Howard explains why teachers mustn't ‘fake it,’ but must acquire the knowledge, skills, and disposition to successfully teach all students. A great book for teacher-candidates and experienced teachers.”

This books RIPS into any white teachers. This man spews garbage based on his "visions" he had in the 1970's. Teachers are being FORCED to read this and repent their racist methods of teaching. This book is perfect for a fire when you've run out of wood. Unfortunately there was no rating lower than a one star. Trust me taking any time to read his reverse racist trash will infuriate you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is awesome! I think that anyone should read it but anyone in the education field should absolutely read.
It show the importance of race, social class, and status. It helps to open people's eyes to see that their is a problem with the educational system and the population at large and that we need to o something about.
