Why teach all Australian kids about racism?
Teaching Australian children about racism provides an important opportunity to:
- recognise that the intent and impact of racism is crucial in eliminating racism
- explore how education can break the cycle of silence and denial the enables racism
- appreciate that racism can generate tensions within school communities and impact on the educational experiences of all students
- understand how racist attitudes stem from fear about difference and how education can remove that fear.
