“Dealing With Prejudice” Prejudice in school goes beyond just race and ethnicity, kids are treated differently because of gender and sex as well. When dealing with prejudice as a parent, it is extremely important to lead by example for your kid, and not enforce any stereotypes. If your child does have racist views, it is important to talk to him about it and not ignore it. Schools can do a lot to discourage racist views such as celebrating other holidays, learning about immigration, and emphasizing group success instead of strictly individual success “Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” Privilege works both ways – if a group is disadvantaged, then there must be a group that gains advantages from that group’s disadvantage.
