Trying, Choice, Social Conformity and Pride?
Annett, Danielle
Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, v14 n1 Fall 2017
Danielle Annett begins this article by saying that, although the "Brown" decision was more than 60 years ago, communities remain largely segregated, prompting the latest in questionable desegregation attempts. Students are not failing within a strong and well-funded system; rather, an inequitably funded system is failing strong students. Annett argues that minoritized students have dealt time and time again with different forms of "isms" that shape and reshape who they are. Students of color are consistently pushed out of schools and into others in efforts to "desegregate" and access opportunities (e.g. school choice). The article presents a discussion on the issues People of Color face, and offers a conversation about what it means to be who we are: the assumptions that people make based on physical characteristics, clothing, hair, and more and naturally, what to do about it.
