Wanted: a cure for colour-blindness

January 3, 2019

Turning a blind eye to the racism underlying our education system means that any solution will be partial at bestWhen the US education system was created more than 150 years ago, fewer career paths required college degrees, the student population was far less diverse, and antiquated and destructive ideas about race, gender and disability influenced perceptions of whether a student could succeed. The system was built to direct a few students (typically those who were white, male and middle-class) toward rigorous learning experiences and therefore careers that sustained their privilege, while providing a basic education to the rest. This legacy still undergirds our education system today and, as a result, race and class remain the most reliable predictors of students' academic achievements - even as our schools and nation become more diverse.Alliance issue: Systems Change, March 2019, Volume 24 , Number 1.
