To teach about genocide means to call attention to the question of how much power a state should have (e.g., state sovereignty), the responsibility of a community to put humanity over political and economic issues, and the ethics of every institution that contributes to the development of a nation that recognizes only certain groups of people. To learn about genocide means teachers and students need to read stories from beyond the pages of our content anthologies and learn to listen to voices that will trouble what it means to demonstrate growth and account for progress. To teach genocide means to think about the social forces that create the need for initiatives like NCLB and genocide education acts. I was not ready to do that in my second year of teaching. I did not know how to even begin.
