Journey of Racial Discrimination in Educationâ€” Genealogical Analysis
AbstractIn this paper, we uncover how racial discrimination in education has shifted in different periods of time. Using the genealogical analysis method, we examined three distinct time periods. Racial discrimination does not disappear, but penetrates into the micro-educational context through curriculum, in grades, and funding to normalize people into a mainstream culture. This study is meaningful since we consider racial discrimination in education in different periods of time. In the first period, nearly all restrictions identified were structural in nature, while in the second period, fewer structural limitations remained, but were combined with a paternalistic approach.Â Finally in the third period, unspoken and off the table structural prohibitions exist through approaches that allow discrimination to continue. Acknowledging this changing agenda in different periods of time sheds light on ways to break the structural barriers and promote studentsâ€™ equal access to education.
