Text of My Speech in Little Rock, AR (Decenter Yourself)

In a small, yet simple act of deflection, I managed to decenter myself and put the onus of learning on the students so they can take ownership. I ask them to imagine “What if I wasn’t there? Would you still learn?” I don’t quit until they’ve learned how to ask good questions, not just of themselves, but also of the content they’re learning and the teacher himself.

I’m not interested in who each candidate stands next to, even if I got love for them. I’m interested in knowing whether policymakers will move us closer to true equity, and how.
