We speak of wanting diversity in education, but it's taking a while to get there.  Teachers of color can make a big difference in the education of a child of color. 

So non-white teachers are in high demand... but also in short supply.  Monique Morris, author and social justice scholar, wants to see the educational system shift its focus to girls of color, a case she lays out in the book Sing A Rhythm, Dance A Blues: Education for the Liberation of Black and Brown Girls

Book and author are featured in this month's edition of The Keenest Observers, with host Rob Goodwin.  Monique Morris joins us for a lively discussion of the issues.
