Diversity: A Myth in Educational Institutions
This talk will give the audience a historical view of the American Educational System and its institutional design, showing how public schools and institutions of higher learning apparently do not embrace diversity and sometimes fight against it. The presenter contends that diversity initiatives are difficult to implement because of issues related to race, class, politics, and priorities. In addition, it will take a collective strategy to accomplish diversity, inclusion and equity in schools, colleges, and universities. If those groups, which have been historically disenfranchised, are not at the discussion table, then diversity will not be achieved.
