Book Description

March 15 2012

How do race and race relations influence leadership practice and the education of students? In this timely and provocative book, the author identifies cultural and unstated norms and beliefs around race and race relations, and explores how these dynamics influence the kind of education students receive. Drawing on findings from extensive observations, interviews, and documents, the author reveals that many decisions that should have been made based on pedagogy (or what is best for students) were instead inspired by conscious and unconscious racist assumptions, discrimination, and stereotypes. With applicable implications and lessons for all, this book will help schools and leadership programs to take the next step in addressing longstanding and deeply entrenched inequity and inequality in schools.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rhetoric heavy.. Jan. 26 2013
By E. Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book has valuable research and information, but the writing style is over-the-top academic to the point of slowing down the pace. It is most definitely an extended academic article. Someone looking for a book that flows and presents information in a more efficient manner may want to choose another similar topic book.
