Are Racial Issues Discussed in the Nation’s Predominantly White Classrooms?

“We asked about going beyond a discussion about Martin Luther King Jr., to talking about what is happening today — how these kids see racial injustice and how they deal with it,” said Virginia Huynh, professor in the College of Health and Human Development at California State University, Northridge, one of the researchers on the study. “What we saw is that the teachers in the urban school were more willing to talk about those subjects than the rural one. But even then, it was only once in the past year.”
