Racial Bias in Education
By: Melanie Huckins
What is racial bias?
Is this really politically correct?
Should this racial bias be in schools of so much diversity?
Standardized test scores often stereotype a student based on what box they check off in the “race” portion of the test. A white student is expected to get higher scores than a black student because of the racial bias in this country. Color doesn’t matter when it comes to intelligence. Humor in images, shows how race just gives people something to talk about and make up untrue stereotypes about students. Articles explaining examples of racial upper hand regarding race really exemplifies the problem we have in the US with the education system. Racial differences are no secret to society because racism is everywhere. At school, at the grocery store, in your backyard. Everywhere. Living without it wouldn’t be the US.
