Fuller On Rankism In Schools, Part 2

December 25, 2013

Excerpted from Somebodies and Nobodies, by Robert W. Fuller: Deviations from equal dignity set in motion a dynamic that draws attention away from whatever we’re doing – working, learning, or healing. When energy is diverted to defending one’s dignity against insults in the workplace, productivity suffers. In schools, students sacrifice their learning to defend their dignity. Today, it is not so much racial prejudice as misuse of rank that functions to keep students of all colors from committing themselves to education. It is rankism that creates the specious divide between winners and losers at an early age and extinguishes ambition in many before they reach third grade.
