White Privilege PBJ of the Day: Principals at Portland Public Schools are beginning the school year with intensive staff trainings to help educators understand their own “white privilege” — the idea being that afterward, they can change their teaching practices and sensitivity to other cultures to boost minority students’ performance. 
Take PBJs, for instance: “What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?” says Verenice Gutierrez, principal at Harvey Scott K-8 School. “Another way would be to say: ‘Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that?’ Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.” 
Hmmm… points for trying?[thanks, henry!



Wait, what?! But agreed. A for effort!
