In Episode 48, we explore teaching in a western suburbs school, where students often face bigotry, and negative stereotyping based on their race, their religious beliefs, and the suburbs they live in.
We examine how their teacher who grew up in the same suburb, supports them to talk through and write about their lives; as well as teaching them about the complexities of being Muslim.
