About this product
- DescriptionWithin critical discussions of school reform, researchers and activists are often of two camps. Some focus their analyses on neoliberal ecomic agendas, while others center on racial inequality. These analyses often happen in isolation, continuing to divide those concerned with educational justice into It's race! vs. It's class! camps. What's Race Got To Do With It? brings together these frameworks to investigate the role that race plays in hallmark policies of neoliberal school reforms such as school closings, high-stakes testing, and charter school proliferation. The group of scholar activist authors in this volume were selected because of their cutting-edge racial ecomic analysis, understanding of corporate reform, and involvement in grassroots social movements. Each author applies a racial ecomic framework to inform and complicate our analysis of how market-based reforms collectively increase wealth inequality and maintain White supremacy. In accessible language, contributors trace the historical context of a single reform, examine how that reform maintains and expands racial and ecomic inequality, and share grassroots stories of resistance to these reforms. By analyzing current reforms through this dual lens, those concerned with social justice are better equipped to struggle against this constellation of reforms in ways that unite rather than divide.
