Dave Rubin has interviewed Katharine Birbalsingh, who made headlines for being ‘Britain’s strictest headmistress’, and for taking on Leftist orthodoxies about the failure of black schoolchildren.
He questions her on her attitude to race, humanity, on her own background and about her own evolution from Leftism (when she thought to be good you had to be Left) to conservatism.
She discusses common misconceptions which have created obstacles to the teaching of black children – ones that are not down to racist teachers but rather to low expectations, to letting kids off the hook, to false and negative notions of victim oppression, to discipline failure and lack of competition.
She excoriates the white middle-class Lefties who did their best to obstruct the development of her new free school and the furthering of poor women’s interests. She tells how she withstood them. It is well worth the watch.
