Terrance Ruth

Terrance Ruth is an administrator for Wake County Public Schools. His administrative and teaching career has focused on serving under-performing, misrepresented, adjudicated youth. He was engaged in the Race to the Top Initiative and is now working on integrating concepts of space and time distinctions in relation to future perceptions of race.

The concept of race headlines many discussions in America. If you are talking about education, then you must address the achievement gap between white and black students. If you are talking about poverty, then you must talk about the disproportionate number of people of color who consume social services. If the conversation is about crime, you are pressed to mention the high number of African American male inmates. It’s the fog of race: prejudice and discrimination applied to pigmentation-neutral topics.
