Decolonizing Education: Unlearning Streaming facilitates participants through five thought provoking modules that provide insight into the reasons why destreaming is an equitable practice. These modules offer research and perspectives that foster the unlearning of:
- Disadvantageous, discriminatory and oppressive educational beliefs that sustained streaming
- Unconscious biases and assumptions embedded in planning for students' pathways and programming
- Stereotypical language and labels we have traditionally used
- How colonization has impacted education
