The educated educators are back in action on a Friday night! Tonight is the second night of February, which means the beginning of Black History Month. While most classrooms should be getting ready to teach Black history, some aren't, because they're afraid of accusations of racism. Tim and Johnny reaffirm that Black history is just American history, and needs to be taught more in our classrooms. It's not racist to teach Black history, and it's not racist against white people to teach Black history.

What California is doing is putting their money where their mouth is to try and help schools support learning.
