Exploring ‘Other Ways of Knowing’: The New Religious Threat to Science Education

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Jul 01, 2020 | Quilette

Evidence of racism, shown in these articles in Quilette, is traced to a lack of racial diversity among scientists. Lenny Pier Ramos suggests that minority groups are under-represented in many programmes, although university admission offices, faculties and funding bodies have for decades offered preferential opportunities to applicants from marginalised communities. In recent years, political arguments about the lack of diversity have become more rhetorically ambitious. Many advocates oppose objective meritocratic standards in education and some accuse entire academic disciplines of being racist. The reintroduction of religion into scientific curricula would not be seen as progressive, so it is curious that some suggest that indigenous students must be allowed to shelter in their own ontological realms.
