Fuyu Shimomura – Whiteness and Education, 2024

Bennett, Jacob – Whiteness and Education, 2021
Teacher educators report preservice teachers often have difficulty understanding the structural nature of oppression in the United States.

It also examines how equity coaching -- an approach to professional…

McKenzie, Kathryn Bell; Phillips, Glenn Allen – Whiteness and Education, 2016
In what some have called a 'post-racial' era, with the two-term election of the first African American president of the US, it is often assumed that pre-service and newly in-serviced millennial teachers would have an advanced equity consciousness. However, in this NSF-funded qualitative study that explored the equity consciousness of new teachers…

In this article, we argue that discourses of "diversity" and "intersectionality" can undermine efforts to address racism, protect white privilege, and marginalize people of color. To illustrate how, we present an ethnographic account of student, staff, and faculty efforts to infuse campus culture at a small liberal arts college…
