The Story of Schooling: Critical Race Theory and the Educational Racial Contract
Leonardo, Zeus
Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, v34 n4 p599-610 2013
This article is an engagement of methodology as an ideologico-racial practice through Critical Race Theory's practice of storytelling. It is a conceptual extension of this practice as explained through Charles Mills' use of the "racial contract (RC) as methodology" in order to explain the Herrenvolk Education--one standard for Whites, another for students of color--that is in place in the USA. At its most general, the article introduces the full offerings of Mills' RC methodology for a study of educational research. Once deployed, the RC as methodology unveils a school system's foundation as deeply racial rather than universal or race-neutral.
