Race in the Classroom

January 25, 2022

Black high school students share their perspective on how issues of race and racism are handled in the classroom. Listen to ten students from across the country—California, Washington, Colorado, New Mexico, Kentucky, Ohio, Florida, South Carolina, Washington DC, and Massachusetts.

“I think schools avoid talking about race as much as they possibly can.”

“We’re not seeing the successes of people who look like us.”

“Race shouldn’t just be talked about when there is a huge problem that has come up in our society.”
