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.
