Institutional Racism and Anti-Racism in Teacher Education: Perspectives of Teacher Educators
O'Brien, Joe
Irish Educational Studies, v28 n2 p193-207 Jun 2009
This paper focuses on the issue of institutional racism in the Irish education system. Drawing on insights from Critical Race Theory, the views of a sample of teacher educators in the Republic of Ireland were sought in relation to the existence of institutional racism in the Irish post-primary system and the extent to which anti-racism permeates teacher education programmes. Findings suggest the need for a form of deep engagement with anti-racism issues in the education of student teachers and the difficulties of doing so in the current structure of the Postgraduate Diploma in Education. (Contains 3 notes.)
