Vaughn, Sharon; Fletcher, Jack M. – American Educator, 2021

Cohen, Rachel M. – American Educator, 2021
Many families are desperate to get their kids back to school, and many political leaders agree, worried about harm to children's educations and believing that key to fixing the economy is making it easier for parents to work. But the pandemic, which is still raging, has led to one of the most politicized and divisive debates in America: Can we…

Salter, Phia S. – American Educator, 2021
Among the many tensions that the year 2020 laid bare, the divisions in beliefs about the continued role of racism in the United States were central.

Boyd, Ashley S.; Darragh, Janine J. – American Educator, 2021
Racism is a systemic issue that works alongside white privilege, a system of unearned benefits, such as obtaining financial breaks and loans, being reflected consistently in classroom curriculum, and being assumed as the "norm." Assumptions about people with light skin include their being honest, responsible, and safe. Thus, white…
