There are various ways to deal with the racial dispute at classroom. Stereotypes play an important role in prejudice. The tendency to think about others in terms of their membership in various groups ar categories appears to be a key factor in the occurance and persistance of prejudicial behaviour. It is vital for a teacher to have a proper understanding and knowledge regarding the children and their behaviour in order to shape them as good citizens of the society. The main cause of racial discrimination towards a child in a classroom is may be due to the fact that the worlds of those children are distinct and they rarely intersect.
It is in the hands of our current school administrators, teachers, and lastly students, to enact real change in hopes of achieving true racial equality. Racism and classism management in schools today What if you were not offered the same opportunities based merely off of the color of your skin? What if your peers thought lesser of you because of how much your parents made? It may seem like something of the past, but these manifestations of racism and classism continue to lurk among the depths of schools across the globe. These forms of discrimination are still common within school systems, and continue to affect the lives of many students(Expereiences of racism).
Yet, most kids take this for granted. Why do kids feel the need to hate school? The problem is that, these days kids are thirsty for more and along the way forgetting what they have. None of them wants to be in class, they would rather be at home sleeping or watching television. According to an article “The Value of Education,” by Russell Taylor, there are two reasons behind this attitude – the lack of family values and the lack of responsibility taken by many kids.
Children tend to copy the actions and habits a parent does, and some of it is racism. I, myself have dealt with racism in the past when I was in a public school. It doesn’t feel welcoming in a classroom when everyone is staring at you because of the race you are, and the things they say about you. Racism in public schools needs to stop because students that try to get help from teachers or adults that don’t do anything about it end up taking care of the situation one their own. Some solutions that could help stop racism in school is having get togethers in the afternoon to socialize with each other.
Racism is very much a current issue in our contemporary world. The film, Dear White People, presented a powerful and thought-provoking view on the issue of racism, its effects on society and society’s reaction to it. Racism is a systematic problem that exists in many forms as people perceive and understand racism differently. The issue of white privilege, institutional racism, intersectionality, identity and sexism are interconnected with the issue of racism. Accordingly, I will argue that racism remains to be an issue that exists in our contemporary world.
People learn what their society and culture want them to be. If society wants them to discriminate against a certain religion or race, they will. That’s where my question comes in, are we born racist? There is a lot of research out about this question. Surprisingly, babies notice differences at an early age, but does that mean they are racist?
Many parents who homeschool tend to focus a lot on religion or what they decide is important or interesting, causing them to focus less on the actual learning. It may cause students to not be given the opportunity to learn something they are actually interested in. Homeschooling is a very one on one learning between a student and a parent. Although one on one learning may work for some children, it may not expose them to a variety of ways to learn a new concept or skill that may be easier for them. Lastly, discipline taught between homeschooling and public schooling are extremely different.
“Racism distorts our sense of danger and safety. We are taught to live in fear of people of color. We are exploited economically by the upper class and unable to fight or even see this exploitation because we are taught to scapegoat people of color (Kivel, P).” This quote from the article, The Cost of Racism to White People, barely digs at one of the reasons why racism still occurs in today’s world. There are many motives out there for why racism still occurs. Without a doubt racism still has an influence in the education system.
In my opinion no one is born racist, it’s the way they were raised basically the culture that they were born into. I picked the issue racism because i think it’s one of the most biggest issue we have in America. In every sport there is racism either between the coach in the player, The players or the spokesman and the players. There are even times where the fans are being racist or disrespecting the player. Racism shouldn’t even exist, Everyone is equal to me but some
Nowadays racism isn 't forcing people to do certain things, it is the way people speak, act, and think about others. Some people think that racism is dead or is almost gone, but that is not the case. An example from my personal life was my High School varsity soccer coach. Joel Strickland adopted two African boys when they were just infants. When they sent the two boys to school, who are now four and five years old, they got to witness racism first hand.
