According to Dr Christina Ho from Sydney’s University of Technology, White Students have not obeyed the command to become “multicultural”.
White Students have very rarely mixed with non-White groups, and Dr Ho thinks that this is a problem which must be solved.
“Schools are becoming more segregated in terms of both class and ethnicity,” she told the Sydney Morning Herald. “More and more students are going to schools that do not represent the range of people in their neighbourhood, but rather a select group.”
“You can walk between some of these schools in a few minutes and yet one is like a white bubble and the other is like a non-white bubble,” she said. “Its astounding that this can be happening in the same suburb like say, North Sydney.”
“The fact that there are so few students from language backgrounds other than English raises questions about the ethnic exclusivity of these networks, with ramifications for the composition of Australia’s future political, cultural and economic leaders,”
