SCHOOLS: Surviving ideological bias in the classroom The president of the Australian Education Union (AEU), Ms Pat Byrne, openly acknowledged the ideological bias that dominates the school system in her address to teachers at her union's conference in 2005, when she vehemently defended her union's position. She declared: "... [W]e have succeeded in influencing curriculum development in schools, education departments and universities. The conservatives have a lot of work to do to undo the progressive curriculum." This bias is the consequence of historical factors originating in the politics of the 1960s that led to a domination of school curricula by the ideology of the politically correct Left. Correspondingly, the majority of high-school teachers (be they in the state or private school systems) appear to have many values compatible or consistent with this ideology. This ideological hegemony is one of the salient features of "progressive" education. This means that for the numerous students with non-Left views, the education system presents additional challenges. While many teachers are likeable people who generate a pleasant atmosphere in their classrooms, what pervades in the school system is a way of looking at the world characterized by the Left, an outlook presented not as ideological but as normal, correct, legitimate and just. More importantly, in terms of assessment, what also exists is a subtle un-stated pressure for students to ideologically conform if they want to succeed academically.
扬州大学综合英语二级考试样卷 4
It should be noted that most of the teachers exerting this pressure would probably be unaware that they are doing so because they would be unaware of the bias affecting their assessment. From the teachers' perspective, they are simply sharing their enthusiasms with their classes and responding positively to what they prefer to see in students' work. Meanwhile, the "politically incorrect" arguments presented by some students in their essays would be assessed more severely because, from the teachers' perspective, they are genuinely seen to be flawed. Teacher bias As a private tutor, what I have noticed, by closely observing patterns of ticks and comments made in the assessment of students' papers, is that when students clearly indicate in the introductions of their essays that they share their teacher's politically correct beliefs, the teacher automatically clicks into what I describe as a non-critical frame of mind. Consequently, the teacher is less inclined to notice mistakes in grammar, argument, or in the presentation of evidence. Meanwhile, if students cross the teacher's bias, the opposite happens. The teacher clicks into a critical frame of mind, finding every justification in the essay to deduct grades. Due to the psychological subtlety of this behavior, it is highly likely that the teachers displaying their bias would not recognize it as such, but rather see the grade solely as the product of their professional judgment. It is human nature to display an affinity for those who appear to be like-minded, and to favor them, and this is as true for the assessment of essays as it is in most human interactions. However, because so many teachers share an ideological disposition, the aggregate effect of this tendency is a politically correct bias that appears to be both systematic and widespread. In addition, this bias is so common, so prevalent, and so deep-seated that it has achieved a degree of normalcy or a taken-for-granted quality, thereby being virtually invisible to many involved with the system. This is much like the way we become more aware of the constant hum of an air-conditioner when it is suddenly switched off than when it is running. Consequently, if greater intellectual diversity were introduced into the education system, for example, to reflect the degree of diversity in the mainstream community, it would probably initially appear strange to many people, especially to many of those working in it. Unfortunately, some teachers are not subtle in expressing their Left-wing bias, being quite militant in the expression of their views and intolerant of dissent. Although evidence of commendable attempts at broad-mindedness and fairness among teachers can be found, evidence of blatant bias is far from rare in the school system. Suspected bias For example, a student came to me late in his Year 11 to receive early preparations for Year
  12. Soon after I commenced helping him in English, he reported to me a recent incident when he suspected that he had experienced ideological bias in the assessment of an essay. He had written an informative piece that appeared to be broadly appreciative of the United States in its victory in the Cold War, which the teacher had severely criticized. Concerned, he made an appointment to
扬州大学综合英语二级考试样卷 5
see his teacher to discuss the matter, a courageous move that few students would make. Unfortunately, what resulted was a severe haranguing, with the teacher yielding no quarter and even boasting to the student that she was "anti-American". To many of the politically correct, the United States is perceived as an international villain for being a militaristic capitalist superpower. When the student renewed his attempt to put his case, her convoluted and uncompromising argument worked its way towards a reference to "Pearl Harbor". Initially stunned by this irrelevancy, the student soon realized that this was a cruel dig at his Japanese heritage. It did the trick. The student ceased putting his complaint. Coming to the
