Wanted: Theories and Research that Explain Privilege and Oppression in Education and U.S. Society.
Race, Gender & Class, v8 n1 p127-38 2001
Examines how educators concerned with America's educational inequality participate in the development of postmodern explanations of education and society that legitimize multiple perspectives on events and institutions and the ways that subordinated groups describe their own experiences. Discusses: the social construction of race and ethnicity, race and class, whiteness and white privilege, unity of the oppressed, and dealing with racism. (SM)
