Race, Racism and Resistance in Public School Policy and Practice

Course Number: 49650

Course Description

This course explores the ways race and racism have shaped and continue to shape public education in the United States. We will engage historical perspectives, contemporary policy debates, critical theory, empirical research, as well as reflections from school practitioners and activists to understand the mechanisms that reproduce racial inequality in public education. In addition to examining the mechanisms of racial inequality, this course will examine the impact of collective action, policy interventions, and anti-racist direct practice in making public schools settings of racial justice.
