Does Education Spur Racism and Sexism?

By IGI Global on Sep 7, 2017
Black Lives Matter, The Flint to Standing Rock Rally, anti-Trump rallies, minimum wage movement, prison protests and land rights are common protests and phrases that have flashed across headlines in the past year and recently, with the “White Supremacy” rallies, America seems to be ripping at the seams as people are standing up for their civil liberties

These protests are taking place in America, but they are spreading worldwide as more and more people are standing up for their societal rights. Although these protests may be crucial to societal progression, they often turn violent and deadly as peaceful protests turn into riots. Therefore, the question becomes: How can citizens stop taking up arms against each other and learn to accept one another and their differences?

Profs. Xeturah M. Woodley (New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM, USA), Gaspard Mucundanyi (New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM, USA) and Megan Lockard (New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM, USA) believe that the solution is education. The understanding and acceptance of cultural diversity is being implemented into many curriculums yet, one area of education is still rooted in the cultural context of racism, classism, sexism and inherent bias--online education.
