Problem

Misrepresentation in educational materials

Other Names:
Dissemination of discriminatory information
Dissemination of hate literature
Promulgation of myths in education materials
Nature:
Educational materials used in schools and for public information purposes may deliberately make use of words and phrases which help to develop prejudice, misunderstanding and conflict. The locally accepted standards of scholarship, justice and morality may not be applied to other nations, cultures, religions or groups, and due recognition and representation of their contribution to society may be deliberately ignored.
