Diversity be our, like, strenff.

New York is dropping the literacy test for teachers.

Yes.

Why?

Well, of course, because Black and Latino aspirants fail it too often.

Hey, just because you can’t read or write is no reason to deny a sistah or a compadre a teaching job. Dat be like, deskriminayshun, amigo.

And what’s so special about “English,” anyway? Isn’t it THE language of oppression?

Diversity Macht Frei!
