"Understanding and Addressing
Implicit Bias in Education."
While most of us are familiar with and weary of explicit (i.e., consciously held and endorsed) prejudices, contemporary psychological theory suggests that people can also have biases that are implicit (i.e., operate largely outside of conscious awareness or control). When and how does a person’s race, gender, or membership in another social category influence the decisions we make about them, even when we are genuinely trying to be unbiased? And what concrete steps can we do to help prevent this from happening?
