The Illusion of Inclusion: A Critical Race Theory Textual Analysis of Race and Standards
Heilig, Julian Vasquez; Brown, Keffrelyn D.; Brown, Anthony L.
Harvard Educational Review, v82 n3 p403-424 Fall 2012
In this article, Julian Vasquez Heilig, Keffrelyn Brown, and Anthony Brown offer findings from a close textual analysis of how the Texas social studies standards address race, racism, and communities of color. Using the lens of critical race theory, the authors uncover the sometimes subtle ways that the standards can appear to adequately address race while at the same time marginalizing it--the "illusion of inclusion." Their study offers insight into the mechanisms of marginalization in standards and a model of how to closely analyze such standards, which, the authors argue, is increasingly important as the standards and accountability movements continue to grow in influence. (Contains 2 notes and 2 tables.)
