Noble’s founding principal of Butler College Prep, Christopher Goins, was recently featured by Chicago Public Schools for the development of his new course. Mr. Goins launched a class at the Pullman neighborhood campus called Introduction to Urban Education. This course is taught and designed by Mr. Goins, as a first step to ending the 2% black male teacher crisis in America.
“More importantly, the dearth of black male teachers in Illinois is worse with about 1%. The purpose of this class is to put leaders in the educational field in front of the students so that they are able to get inspired,” said Mr. Goins.
