Addressing K-12 education and higher education in historically black as well as predominantly white institutions, the work probes the impact of race and racism on education policies and reforms to determine the role schools, school processes, and school structures play in the perpetuation of racial inequality in American education. Each section validates the impact of race on teaching and learning and exposes the ways in which racism manifests itself in U.S. schools.
