'Colorblind' Policies Exacerbate Racial Inequalities

'Colorblind' Policies Exacerbate Racial Inequalities | Racial Inequalities fuel Educational Inequalities | Scoop.it

"Last month, the U.S. Department of Education announced that the public school population will be less than 50 percent white, non-Hispanic for the first time in our nation’s history by this coming fall. In response to this significant milestone amid the demographic changes sweeping this country, the National Education Policy Center is releasing a new evidence-based policy brief presenting serious concerns about the capacity of the current educational policy agenda to prepare children for the 21st century. The brief’s ground-breaking analysis concludes that education reforms that ignore racial differences and disparities (so-called race-neutral or 'colorblind' education reforms) have exacerbated racial inequalities in student access to high-quality schooling. Furthermore, these reforms, which have been dominant over the past 30 years, have handicapped a whole generation of American children growing up in an increasingly racially diverse society and global economy." | via National Education Policy Center

Phillip Davis's insight:

This article looks at the use of 20th century tactics to force diversity in schools and the negative impact it has on education. By trying to force racial diversity in school you create policies that influence educational inequalities. By using 21st century policies we create a great learning environment with limited inequalities.
