The Realization of Anti-Racist Teaching.
Brandt, Godfrey L.
In order to dismantle racism through development of new curricula and positive pedagogic practices, education professionals must be informed about the history, structure, and culture of racism. An examination of the nature of schooling demonstrates that the education system is a crucial component of a racist state, by propounding a racist pedagogy. A wide range of practices in pursuit of diverse goals is considered for the development of the pedagogy of anti-racism. New materials need to be developed, and the ones currently in use need to be examined. Curricula and examinations must be altered to help consolidate anti-racist change. Teachers need the space and stimulation that in-service training provides in order to develop anti-racist teaching. There is an urgent need for research into classroom processes in relation to anti-racist aims and objectives, and for more curriculum development projects that engage the community. Tables, figures, and a map illustrate the data. A bibliography of more than 100 items is included. (BJV)
