Student voice 7-11
100% (80) students who participated in the workshop found it useful and would recommend it to a peer.
For those who would like to understand more about prejudice and how to report it please read below.
Prejudice is when we decide what we think about someone before we’ve got to know them. Literally we “pre-judge”.
It means seeing someone as an image, rather than a person. We assume something bad about them because of what they are, rather than understanding who they are.
Prejudice is inside all of us. We all make judgements about other people, and sometimes those judgements are unfair. We all need to look at ourselves and admit when we get things wrong.
When people close their minds, their prejudice can get much worse. Under the Nazis, most Germans became so prejudiced against Jewish people that they agreed to them being destroyed. This was the extreme prejudice that led to the murder of 6 million Jews, including Anne Frank.
Discrimination is the damage caused by prejudice. When we discriminate against someone, it means we treat them less well than other people because of our prejudice about them. The Nazis discriminated against Anne Frank just because she was Jewish
