Stuart Buck is the author of Acting White: The Ironic Effect of Desegregation, published by Yale University Press in May 2010.  He is currently a Distinguished Doctoral Fellow in the Education Reform department at the University of Arkansas.

Some minority students still equate academic achievement with "acting white".  Read Stuart Buck's thoughts on the topic here:  Stuart Buck on "Acting White".

This poem is real, relevant and one of my absolute favorites!  Click the title and see the author's performance.

What Teachers Make, or
Objection Overruled, or
If things don't work out, you can always go to law school


By Taylor Mali
www.taylormali.com

He says the problem with teachers is, "What's a kid going to learn
from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?"
He reminds the other dinner guests that it's true what they say about
teachers:
Those who can, do; those who can't, teach.

I decide to bite my tongue instead of his
and resist the temptation to remind the other dinner guests
that it's also true what they say about lawyers.

Because we're eating, after all, and this is polite company.

"I mean, you¹re a teacher, Taylor," he says.
"Be honest. What do you make?"

And I wish he hadn't done that
(asked me to be honest)
because, you see, I have a policy
about honesty and ass-kicking:
if you ask for it, I have to let you have it.

You want to know what I make?
