Racism and Schools in Mexico: Seeking a Solution by Recognizing the Tragedy

Saúl Velasco Cruz, Bruno Baronnet

Resumen


Abstract: Racism in Mexican society is reproduced through curricular content and everyday practices in schools. Its elimination is a social imperative demanded by historically discriminated groups. Nonetheless, this demand has not translated into significant educational policy because racism is very convenient for power relations that maintain the current social order. In this context we propose in this essay to identify and define possible avenues towards helping educational actors, primarily teachers, engage in concrete antiracist activity. Key words: racism, education and racism, K-12 education, Indigenous education, teacher training, antiracism.
