Challenging the Teacher

A “good” student is considered someone who sits and absorbs information given to them. They do not question ideas or thoughts of the teacher. They simply assimilate into their student body. In earlier times, the good students were those white in colour and of European decent. Chinese and African people were frowned upon in the educational platform. These commonsense ideas made it hard for people to create their own ideas about the world, it supported racism and created an unequal opportunity for learning.

One thought on “Challenging the Teacher

  1. I really liked how you included how in earlier times the good student was white and of European decent, sad to say but often the good student is still typically white and of European decent. Many would think that the idea of a good student should be outgrown by now in the modern world. Thanks for sharing, great post!
