    A group of 162 principals and assistant principals at Minnesota schools
    has invoked the late civil rights icon and former Georgia congressman
    John Lewis to push their goal of "de-centering Whiteness" in education.

    The "Good Trouble Principals" describe themselves as "a loose
    collection of local principals bound together by a commitment to
    changing our nation’s future by engaging in better, more equitable
    education practices."

    "John Lewis said: ‘Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month,
    or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to
    make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble,’" the
    letter reads. "The undersigned principals declare publicly today that
    we are making some noise and getting in good trouble."

    The letter states that the principals intend to do that by
    "de-centering Whiteness" and "dismantling the practices that reinforce
    White academic superiority" – which allegedly include standardized
    testing and "an Americanized version of a caste system in our schools."


    Critics of standardized testing have said it offers an advantage to
    wealthy, White and Asian American families.


    How do Poor whites and Asians pass those standardized tests?

    The liberals know what the problem is but will never admit it.
