Discrimination Against Teachers

September 28th, 2017

Philadelphia Employment Discrimination Lawyers Discuss Discrimination Against TeachersUnfortunately, discrimination has been a common problem in work places across the country and throughout the world. Discrimination can take many forms. People can be harassed or discriminated against for their race, ethnicity, gender, religion, and more. Discrimination can also plague workers in the educational sector as some can be denied job opportunities by administrators.

Educator Discrimination Takes Many Forms

Discrimination can be difficult for people in educational services. There have been many advancements in the educational system, such as compulsory education and integrated schools, but problems persist. For a person that loves teaching and helping others, it can be difficult to understand or encounter discriminatory practices.

Age discrimination is a major problem for US educators. Many educators admit to being harassed or snubbed from job promotions. In 1967, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) was created and prohibited administrators from discriminating against educators 40 years and older, and age cannot be the only or main factor for termination. In spite of legislation, ageism affects many veteran educators. Coupled with racial or religious discrimination, the repercussions can become unbearable.

Discrimination in these environments can be subtle or overt, depending on the school system structure. It can also be confusing for applicants or employees to pinpoint discrimination because it can be so subtle. However, discrimination is illegal and both federal and state laws strictly forbid discrimination in employment or hiring.
