I find many connections between these readings and the readings on autism. The racial prejudice that may be "interwoven into the landscape of the classroom" is not unlike the misunderstandings surrounding those with special needs. The question becomes through what register do you view the situation (research) and who becomes the advocate. The discussion on cultural currency is interesting and can be a very loaded term.
I just truly find myself wanting to know more about the observations from Cultural Consonance. It blows my mind that there are educators that can be bias towards one race over another when their goal is to be open-minded and create an atmosphere that the students would want to learn in.
Behaviour of racism or any kind of interwoven prejudice can be difficult to untangle, but I find it so hard to understand the mentality of 'superior behaviour',especially in education, whereby that then has the opposite effect of what you are supposed to be a role model for, and how that can be so unintentionally (or intentionally ) damaging, yet go unnoticed or rectified.
Imagine, how much does individual racism and negative attitudes affect children? There is not only one answer to this question. But, the biggest breakthrough would be focusing on the education system and authorities instead of focusing the traditions and ethnicities of children in schools. People need to stop putting too much energy on the ethnicity and the race elements especially when we talk about children including special needs.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
