Crowley, Ryan M. – Whiteness and Education, 2019
The author relates and develops Thandeka's notion of White shame to demonstrate how White teachers' early experiences with race can inhibit White racial identity development and work against racial justice.

Vass, Greg – Whiteness and Education, 2016
Likening education to the railway helped reconceptualise my understanding of social justice and contributed to my research on race-making in the classroom. Education and the railway are similar in how they underpin experiences, mobilities, opportunities and limitations in life. For example, boarding a train makes a range of destinations available,…
