ETHS 2  Race and Racism in Education

This interdisciplinary survey course, broadly and deeply, examines the role of race and racism in the educational experiences of the four historically defined racialized core groups in the United States (Native Americans, African/Black Americans, Latinx Americans, and Asian Americans). This course is largely constructed around the words and voices of the aforementioned groups, in order to understand historical dehumanization, (in)access, and segregation in education, as well as contemporary practical manifestations of how race and racism play out in everyday K-16 schooling.
