McDermott, Ray; Raley, Jason D.; Seyer-Ochi, Ingrid – Review of Research in Education, 2009
Studies of race, class, and educational risk often proceed in an established but misleading order: First, race is defined as a trait given at birth and turned into trouble by prejudice and unequal conditions; then, class is defined as traits socialized into children with diminished socioeconomic opportunities; finally, risk is treated as the…

Thomas, Duane E.; Stevenson, Howard – Review of Research in Education, 2009

Gutierrez, Kris D.; Morales, P. Zitlali; Martinez, Danny C. – Review of Research in Education, 2009
Deficit notions about the cognitive potential of individuals from nondominant communities have persisted in social science inquiry, particularly where literacy is concerned.

Children of the poor are at greater educational risk than the children of the wealthy, but to what extent, if any, are these risks the result of undetected linguistic considerations?

Language as subject matter is highly protean; it has been defined in various ways in schools, usually as a reflection of predominant images of teaching and learning. Language is also "in, of," and "for" the world. It exists and flourishes "in" the lives and circumstances of its users, created "of" their worlds; it is thus a way of both being in…
