Confronting Bias

Solutions Journalism Network

The partisan divide over politics and racial justice has reached a boiling point in the United States. How do we begin bridging those divides? One way is to start in the classroom; much of the conflict that arises among individuals and in communities comes from a lack of mutual understanding or appreciation for people from different communities, religions, or cultures.

The stories in this collection explore how teachers and community leaders are tackling tough conversations with students, young and old, who are ready to learn about their own biases, embrace what makes others different, and make new neighbors feel welcome—even when they don't speak the same language.
