Hi Linda,

I think your experience from this year will mirror that of many others as our classrooms and schools become increasingly diverse. The course will explore the topic of ‘migration and refugees’ in a later module, and you will certainly be able to draw some parallels between the modules.

I feel the following quote from the passage really captures just how important development education is and how we must prioritise it in classrooms. ‘My mother would provide me with stark warnings of how racism will try to greatly shape how I navigate my life in Ireland, and how I had to tirelessly work to resist it in the pursuit of my goals’.
