Racial Discrimination or Class Discrimination?
|Posted By: Joseph Mahon on March 23, 2005|
|The tilte references racial discrimination and there are many references to racial discrimination in the article. I am sure that racial discrimination is still occurring in public education. However, the author correctly refers to "ethnic minority and low income students" throughout the article. Many low-income students are white and I do not think we would not classify their mistreatment as racial discrimination. We would classify it as class discrimination; therefore, I find the logic underlying the claims in the aricle to be faulty.|
