As janice i don't really care about how the question of institutional racism is approached and treated as long as it is not ignored. Or where. As, of course, we all know we are not living in a a post racist world.
Your exercise was fun, i hope, for the kids. As long as your son was happy with it, of course.
I don't think you would have gotten away with it in an Australian classroom as partisan politics in high school classrooms is frowned upon. There is, of course, partisan political discussion as kids ask questions as 'Who are you voting for?' and many teachers would answer honestly, as i did. Still, no teacher, i don't think, would get away with putting a candidate's poster on the classroom wall.
It's sorta like conservatives would like to have it in some of your states
Teachers are told not to get ‘political’ in the classroom. What does that actually mean?
