Is Meritocracy a Myth?

Sarah Best

14th April 2021

This video from Vox examines meritocracy in the education system in the USA, particularly for people of colour.

At the beginning of the video, there is an board game that is used to illustrate some of the difficulties that different students face. The video could be used for the Education unit (social class, racism, social mobility).
