Problem there is 1. not that many black teachers in the system. 2. they get snatched up by suburban districts and 3. they often dont want to deal with troubled inner city kids either.

Finally I have seen some white teachers who do perfectly fine with all black classes.

I should also add that Kansas city has an all black school called the African Centered Academy that has programs centered on promoting black culture.
