How Can International Education Help Reduce Students' Prejudice?
Prospects: Quarterly Review of Comparative Education, v44 n3 p395-410 Sep 2014
This article offers a definition of prejudice and then reviews the literature on relevant theories of its development and methods to identify and map it. It then discusses how prejudice is institutionalised and legitimised in schools, before turning to the main thrust of its investigation: the extent to which international education (K-12) can reduce prejudice. It then offers several sets of suggestions on how to reduce prejudice in schools, drawing on research, theory, and practice.
