Dr. Vanita Glenn-White:  Exploring bias in pre-service teachers

“The first thing I say before you can lead your staff, you need to sit down and identify any bias or your cultural phrase because we all have them. I don’t know where we got this from that it is bad to have a bias. We all have them. It’s just, what are you doing with it when it comes up, that’s where the problem starts.”
