Can we ever have an unbiased classroom.

Is it possible for a classroom to not be culturally biased? We look at test questions and realize that what we consider knowledge is biased, even the word choice is biased. In different countries different things may be the norm, such as the way someones vocabulary is. But is it possible to have a culturally unbiased classroom?

    Nov 18 2012: Well, as you seem biased against biases, I'm afraid not.

    Seriously speaking, you can consider the whole education as a set of individual biases. I would consider that as a great input to trigger discussions, to make people exchange with each other, and at the end to understand their own behavior.

    I like to believe that the sum of our differences make us richer.
