“A classroom divided” – PBS documentary about an experiment in discrimation with 3rd graders

I cannot believe I never heard of this experiment. It is so powerful and still so current in today’s world. I just wish more teachers across the world knew about it, or had the courage to do this with their class.

I don’t believe that I am prejudiced. But then again, I am a white female and the only discrimination I have ever suffered was from being female. Discrimination enough – but never to the degree that ‘brown eyes’ or ‘blue eyes’ may suffer.

I will definitely share this with my son, with my nephews, with any child I can convince to give an old documentary followed by a ‘serious’ conversation a go.

Just because I could see myself being ‘brown eyes’ on both days…
