The Nature of White Privilege in the Teaching and Training of Adults
Lund, Carole L.
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n125 p15-25 Spr 2010
This chapter describes white privilege and how it impacts the learning environment. Included are actual examples of white privilege from practice and how enforcing white privilege results in racism. The author hopes this chapter will provide a foundation and increase awareness of white privilege and the adult and continuing educators' role in racism. It is designed to provide a mirror for educators in looking at white privilege and how lack of awareness leads to racist actions. Educators and learners will be able to ascertain where they need additional information and developmental growth to become allies and nonracists.
