Ending Racism

George Floyd (deceased)

In a new feature in the Global Search for Education, Michael Baran, the Co-Author of Subtle Acts of Exclusion, says communities “need to work to address structural inequalities in societies in health, wealth, education, and criminal injustice.”

Baran believes that it is important to start talking about bias with preschool children. “If we don’t teach them about this, they will learn passively through all the subtle messages in our culture, which leads to unconscious biases.”

Baran additionally advocates for more focus on training teachers to be inclusive, “as teachers can have unconscious biases as well.”
