How so? Personally, I am not very concerned about it being taught, because it isn’t, so far as I am aware. Teachers will be teaching about racism, I’m sure, but they’re not teaching ‘white privilege’ and shaming white pupils for being advantaged in a racial power dynamic, as the perpetually worried and culture warriors fear.
Should it be taught in schools? It shouldn’t be taught as the solution which we must abide by. I would have little issue if it was taught in an A level or GCSE Philosophy course, since it is a product of modern academics (not a dig), so it would be worth evaluating its merits and pitfalls as a means of improving Philosophy students’ critical thinking capabilities for evaluating theories.
This whole thing reeks of hysteria and reminds me of right wing paranoia about sex education, where they think hardcore sex moves are being taught to ten year olds when they say we should make sex education more of a focus at school, when the focus may be very vague talk of relationships without much talk about the birds and the bees.
