Ethnographies of "A Lesson in Racism": Class, Ethnicity, and the Supremacy of the Psychological Discourse
Shoshana, Avihu
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v48 n1 p61-76 Mar 2017
Through the ethnographies of two schools serving different socioeconomic communities, this article offers an examination of students' and teachers' interpretations of the anti-racism text "Brown Morning" taught in civics classes. Findings present the dramatic differences between the interpretations of students from dissimilar socioeconomic communities, the manners in which these interpretations discordantly activate the teachers, and the disparity of assorted class dynamics. These findings proffer a discussion of the link between education, class, ethnicity, and racism.
