“The conversations have been great, but I think we’re ready to go beyond the conversations,” Crews said in an interview with the Tribune. “We’re practitioners. You can give us the tools, and we’ll use them.”

All of this is being done under the guise of attempting to tackle the racial achievement gap between white and minority students. But how will making minority student feel like victims of constant racism, or PEGS’s lessons about the evils of American capitalism, do anything to improve educational outcomes?

That’s a question that deserves an answer.

The premise of the PEG training program is that the system is stacked against minorities. And yet Singleton, a black man, is laughing all the way to the bank with $2.4 million of Portland taxpayers’ money.

How’s that for equity?
