As a Black female who worked as a substitute teacher in the Montgomery County, Maryland, schools while in graduate school in the South, I could see why Black students are failing ... Many of those parents who move to the suburbs want their children to be in a safer environment, but carry the same habits from da 'hood to the suburbs. I also noted in several cases how the parents believed it was the school's responsibility to teach the students manners, respect ... I wrote more referrals while working in that school district than in any other. It was ridiculous! I moved right back to California after dealing with all of that.
