Sidelined: Bias in SoCal schools and youth sports?

Southern Californians share experiences of discrimination in educational settings

Education is considered the great equalizer but what happens when students face inequality while trying to learn?
Cal State LA’s Race, Class & Gender in American Journalism class created a podcast to explore stories of folks who grappled with racism, sexism, classism, nepotism and other forms of bias or discrimination in educational settings, including schools and athletic programs.

The 10 episodes produced cover a range of obstacles and biases. This project was produced by students in Cal State LA’s JOUR 3500 Race, Class & Gender in American Journalism class in collaboration with Golden Eagle Radio.
