EPISODE 2: BIAS

COPYRIGHT JOSTENS 2020 – Research shows that by five years old, most children already have a bias or stereotype toward minorities, women, or differing social groups. On this episode of The Harbor by Jostens, Mike tackles bias head on. He challenges students to ask themselves tough questions and examine where their biases come from so that we can understand that while it’s okay to disagree with someone, it’s never okay to disrespect.
