(THE COLLEGE FIX) – Tony Kinnett first encountered the ideas behind #DisruptTexts in 2016 while student teaching in rural Indiana.
“There was a teacher who was changing how she taught some of the books that were normally taught in her middle school classroom,” he told The College Fix. “She had basically left out a lot of classical literature in exchange for some modern pieces that were written by more diverse authors.”
After encountering others who wanted to cut “ethnically white” classics in his Master’s Degree program, Kinnett – educator, curriculum developer, and co-founder of The Chalkboard Review – knew something was off. While they claimed the classics were not diverse enough, he noted a deeper reason for the change.
