Oxford Community Action

Black and minoritised individuals often find it easier to learn from educators who share their cultural background due to several key factors.

Firstly, shared experiences and cultural nuances create a sense of understanding and relatability between the teacher and student, fostering a more comfortable learning environment. This familiarity helps to mitigate potential communication barriers and increases the likelihood of effective knowledge transfer.

Secondly, ethnic educators may employ teaching method and examples that resonate more deeply with the cultural contexts of their students, making the material more relevant and engaging.

Additionally, representation matters. Seeing a member from a minoritised community in a position of authority and knowledge inspires confidence and motivation in the community. Overall, the presence of ethnic educators not only enhances outcomes, but also promotes inclusivity and cultural appreciation within educational settings.
