A Critical Examination of Anti-Racist Education

A Critical Examination of Anti-Racist Education is an article by Earl Mansfield and John Kehoe which looks at “conceptual, empirical and political limitations of anti-racist education.” The authors seek to emphasize importance of multicultural education with the “concerns of anti-racist education” to incorporate issues such as “institutional barriers, material inequalities, and power discrepancies between minorities and the majority”. The article explains how incorporating multicultural education with anti-racism education will allow for greater awareness of racism beyond skin colour to include discrimination based on “language, religion, and other cultural markers”.  A Critical Examination of Anti-Racist Education can be accessed through http://www.csse-scee.ca/CJE/Articles/FullText/CJE19-4/CJE19-4-08Mansfield.pdf.
