This powerful and timely analysis takes stock of race and education sixty years after the historic Brown vs. Board of Education decision. This volume examines education as one of the most visible markers for racial disparities in the US as well as one of its most visible frontiers for racial justice. Featuring original research, educators’ insights, and perspectives from communities of color, it documents the complex impact of social/educational policy on social progress.
Chapters on charter schools, curriculum content, performance measurement, and disproportionalities in special education referrals shed light on entrenched inequities that must be confronted. The book also makes it clear that leveling the playing field calls for not only better schools, but also addressing pervasive social problems such as poverty and housing segregation.
Included in the coverage:
- School Policy is Housing Policy: Deconcentrating Disadvantage to Address the Achievement Gap.
- Charter Schooling, Race Politics, and an Appeal to History.
- The Data Quality Movement for the Asian American and Pacific Islander community: an unresolved civil rights issue.
