Against Race- and Class-Based Teaching in Early Childhood Education
This study examined pedagogical approaches in schools serving children of the same socioeconomic level, living in comparable communities with similar social concerns. The parents of these children had comparable views of education and chose the schools in the study for nearly the same reasons. While the children at the two schools were not of the same race, they were from racial minorities that have traditionally struggled with discrimination in the United States. In schools such as these, where the students are poor and of a minority background, children are often taught in a teacher-directed manner, using visible pedagogy.
