A more complex method of reflection is called A reflective practice by which we acknowledge intersecting identities, both privileged and disadvantaged, and implicate ourselves in social hierarchies and inequalities. Here is the disadvantage: many of these children are not raised in the same lifestyle as the other children who attend these classes.
