    ed classes see this conversation re in school segregation Elona interesting comment Would they be windows Let s look at the present situation in Montreal The dropout rate for black students in Montreal is even higher than in Toronto Recent numbers show it at 49 I believe Toronto s is very close at 40 What do we see through that window I would like to think that by creating schools that represent communities and answer to their needs we may at the same time create a society that does the same Chris I agree in theory though I m not so certain that reality reflects the theory For instance you write about the fact of plurality in Canada Our population is certainly composed of many different kinds of people who have many different kinds of beliefs but do our social systems like schools address needs in a pluralistic way No The more I write about this topic the more I realize that I am more in favour of it than not No question our school system both American and Canadian needs radical change In order for change real change to take place it needs to reflect the real needs and concerns of the people who will be directly affected by it Creating schools that respond to community needs in this case the need to motivate learning in a particular community that has long been marginalized and disregarded is a step toward real change My dream to see all schools a reflection of the communities they are in with a goal of strengthening community through education Google Tracy Rosen 4 comments RSS trackback respond Name Mail will not be published Website Notify me of follow up comments by email Notify me of new posts by email jose on February 24 2008 at 9 57 am Yikes like this is a complex problem A part of me likes to see the Black centric curriculum precisely because most populations don t get addressed correctly if at all Another part of me wonders if that s setting kids up to xenophobia i e now that we re already segregated let s segregate ourselves this isn t a chicken and the egg thing the gov t segregates first Anyways that s why I say yikes Christopher Parsons on February 26 2008 at 11 33 am Hi Tracy You ll forgive me but I m not certain how your response would work towards resolving a larger problem of insensitivity to difference in public classrooms In an age that faces the fact of plurality it strikes me as strange to segregate different cultural groups on the basis that reality doesn t reflect plurality Isn t this disjunct between the reality of society and the structure of public educational environments a core reason why teachers often identify monocultural impositions on diverse student bodies as a problem You if I recall properly have mentioned that segregating challenged students can have the opposite effect that is intended by isolating them
