Runyon v. McCrary, 427 U.S. 160 (1970)
I chose this case because I know public schools are not allowed to segregate or exclude students by race. The reason is Brown v. Board of Education case. This raises a question, can private schools segregate and/or exclude students? Private schools are not allowed to exclude or segregate students, because a federal law protects the equal rights of racial minorities to enter into contracts. The only exception is for a religious school where the religion itself can justify racially segregated schooling. This has changed teaching in private schooling because allstudents have the right to be in the private school. Unless the private school can justify racially segregation. This impacts students in a positive way. The students have the right to be in private schools.
I will have to preform different actions to avoid segregation and/or excluding students by race in a private school setting. I could have my classroom's posters, pictures, books, music, toys, dolls, and other materials are diverse in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, age, family situations, disabilities, and so on. I also need to avoid racial stereotypes towards students and parents.
This case is related to diversity; therefore, my actions are related to promoting diversity. Students need to feel they belong in the classroom. If they do not then learning is little difficult for the students.
When using technology, I can choose websites or apps that will teach students about diversity. It can also teach the students even though they are different from other people they can still be friends.
The students will benefit from understanding it is okay for someone to be different they can still learn just like them. The students will learn they can work with other students even if they are differnt in race. The students will also learn about diversity from me choosing teachnology activities that are related to diversity.
