Caleb Collier: Achieving Equity: Self-Directed Learning and the De-“Tracking” of Education
From Dana Salter
This study will explore the role that racial bias plays in placing learners on different learning tracks (e.g. gifted, advanced, remedial) through a thorough literature review. Then, using philosophical methods, the argument will be made that self-directed learning (SDL) pedagogies can lead to more equitable learning environments by disrupting this racialized "tracking" of learners by infusing school design with learner choice and agency.
