What an empowering course for teachers! Like the fish thinking nothing of the water (until it’s taken out and shown it!) it seems easy to forget the privileges we take advantage of and how sharing something as mundane as our own career pathway may be life changing for students and their communities. Approaching our students from all walks of life as potential future *whatever-they-want-to-be*s and enriching their lives with examples of varied career options from an early age seems paramount. Popping student x in the “TAFE aka housos“ or “school drop out” box because of their location, socioeconomic status, gender or race seems counter to our work as teachers. Wouldn’t it be great if our school systems were set up to more equitably share the socio-cultural capital and thereby enable the best person for the education/job to get it?
