Finally we are getting workshops to k-12 teachers if they should face white privilege in their classrooms.
Is this the inevitable results of liberal "policies" going to extremes?


A recent conference hosted by an Ivy League university focused on integration and inclusion in K-12 education and included workshops on how educators should face white privilege in their classrooms, challenge microaggressions and address “Eurocentric pedagogical approaches.”
www.thecollegefix.com...

Presentations included-whiteness in our schools, a history of Whiteness and discussion of how Whiteness shapes schools, 3 ways to face white privilege in the classroom and White culture shapes what happens in schools.


The event, in its second year, drew 300 participants that mostly consisted of K-12 teachers and principals, the institute’s director Amy Wells said in a phone interview with The College Fix. The four-day conference included plenary sessions, dozens of workshops and dialogue sessions.

One presentation, called “Whiteness in schools,” provided “a history of Whiteness, and will invite participants into a discussion of how Whiteness and White culture shapes what happens in schools,” according to a description.


Teaching social justice, because we are rooted in colonial and racist ideologies....Right?


And a workshop on “Teaching for Social Justice” sought to challenge colonialist and racist pedagogies.

“We will challenge Eurocentric pedagogical approaches that not only under-prepare students for the realities of our increasingly multiethnic, multilingual, globalized society, but are also rooted in colonial and racist ideologies that stifle the voices, identities, and realities of students of color,” a description states.

Be a lot cooler if they worked on getting those reading, math, and science rankings up.

And people wonder why Generation Z will be Conservative. Eventually even the younger generations will be so tired of this SJW crap, that they will turn Conservatism into the new counterculture.

Here in Michigan the k-12 gets 10,000 to 13,000 per student.

There is literally dump truck loads of money going to educate every child. Black, white, red, they all get the same huge check every year.

Pitiful that 300 educators attended this meeting. I hope to never sit across a table at a teacher conference and listen to this BS.

They did a IQ study recently. US and to some extent UK IQ are sinking while Chinese, korean and Japanese are climbing.

And Japan, China and Korea dont waste valuable education time on libral white guilt, gender politics and other rubbish.

It been shown a higher a countrys IQ the higher there standard or living and economic flexibility.

All those numbers and statistics you showed us are racist and part of the white privilege problem!

We just need to find a different way to approach statistics so that our valuable minority children can succeed.

That's called Common Core. Designed to make us all the same, equally dumbed down.

It's good only 300 racists attended this conference on how to be a racist jerk of a teacher.

Personally I'd be looking at eliminating this organisation.

So in a few decades when Whites are no longer the majority in the US, are we going to have conferences on how to combat "browness in schools"?

Why "Combat?" I thought we were to be inclusive, accepting all cultures.

Consider that being 'Eurocentric' is the reason we exist. If we were 'Afrocentric' we would be in smaller tribes, continually in conflict and selling captives into slavery. We would be on a starvation diet, living in huts and burning wood. We would have trouble getting fresh water and be stricken with disease. It would seem that our educators are far down the rabbit hole and are wasting time on SJW trivia. We need to drain the education swamp.
De-emphasize interscholastic sports in High School. Cut the vacations to a total of eight weeks in 2 week segments per quarter. Pay teachers for performance. Dual track students into trades; not everyone is suited for college and we need skilled trades. All non-secretary school positions should include some teaching, except for the Principal. Eliminate assistants to the assistant and as many full time admin jobs as possible.
I expect that at some point, brick and mortar schools will start down the path of brick and mortar stores as primary schooling eventually goes online. Initially, I see more primary in-school computerized learning as children are easily distracted in a home environment and need early social interaction. All should participate in some sort of daily physical activity if only running around a track.
High schools will need more physical presence. Skilled trades will require the appropriate training facilities and after some years of training, students could apply to apprenticeship programs. This could be competitive with only the best getting skilled trade jobs and others getting 'assistant' jobs. College track students in the sciences and engineering will also need appropriate facilities and their interactions will help them realize the breadth and depth of science and engineering. All will learn history and language[s]. Art and music classes would be available at magnet schools. Education moves slower than Government, so I expect that these changes will take decades.

No, at that point, they will be passing laws segregating out the white kids into separate but equal education systems because whiteness will be so toxic that it will be the only way to deal with it.

Of course, that will come with the separate living spaces called reservations too.

I would imagine the answer is that Eurocentric culture and education is "exclusive" by its very nature, so we can't include it.

Maybe if people would ignore race, this wouldn't be an issue.
We are constantly told everyone is equal but by God you treat me different.
