Antiracist Andragogy in School Counselor Education and Training
Black students continue to experience trauma in response to racial, social, political, and cultural discrimination. Therefore, there is a need for antiracist work to push beyond awareness and to seek action for systemic change on their behalf. School counselors are uniquely positioned to encourage spaces of equity and justice however, counseling students have reported feeling unprepared to work with unfamiliar groups of people (Littleford et al., 2010). School counselor training programs are expected to prepare counselors to address racism through comprehensive counseling programs that emphasize advocacy and social justice. Drawing from Critical Race Theory, this article examines the context of the impact of discrimination and racial injustices against Black students. This article further outlines culturally responsive andragogy designed to prepare future practitioners to engage in anti-racist work on behalf of Black students.
