For students, it is a lack of access and exposure to mentors and resources. They are hungry. They don’t feel safe in their own neighborhoods.
For Teachers, the Mess is trying to figure out how to get the students to care when you cannot serve their immediate needs.
- Level the playing field between Educator & Student.
- Adhere to the same standards you hold your students to.
- Be a Listening Artist before being a Teaching Artist.
