UNLEARNING DEFICIT IDEOLOGY AND THE SCORNFUL GAZE:
Thoughts on Authenticating the Class Discourse in Education

What purpose does Deficit Ideology
serve?
EXAMPLE
Assuming intellectual inferiority because...

- a student speaks a language different than your own

- a student learns best in a manner that is a different style than your own
Deficit Ideology is strongly tied to established STEREOTYPES
"[...]deficit ideology can be understood as a sort of
“blame the victim”
mentality applied, not to an individual person, but systemically, to an entire group of people, often
based upon a single dimension of identity
. At the core of deficit ideology is the
belief that inequalities result
, not from unjust social conditions such as systemic racism or economic injustice, but
from intellectual, moral, cultural, and behavioral deficiencies

assumed

to be inherent in disenfranchised individuals and communities
,"
“labeling" is used to draw a clear us/them distinction:

WE are law-abiding, hardworking, decent, and virtuous. THEY are very different. THEY are lazy, immoral, and permissive.

These binary oppositions act to exclude indigenous people, women, the poor, and others from the
community of
worthy individuals

(sort of makes you WANT to identify with the WE)
LABELING
Why are poor people poor?

They’re lazy.
They don’t care about education.
They’re substance abusers.

This turns into
VICTIM BLAMING...
"After all, if poor communities are to blame for their own poverty, they are more easily painted as being unworthy or undeserving of a fair shake,"
