Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0813532256, Paperback)Could your kids be learning a fourth R at school: reading, writing, ’rithmatic, and race?
Race in the Schoolyard takes us to a place most of us seldom get to see in action¾our children’s classrooms¾ and reveals the lessons about race that are communicated there. Amanda E. Lewis spent a year observing classes at three elementary schools, two multiracial urban and one white suburban. While race of course is not officially taught like multiplication and punctuation, she finds that it nonetheless insinuates itself into everyday life in schools.
Lewis explains how the curriculum, both expressed and hidden, conveys many racial lessons. While teachers and other school community members verbally deny the salience of race, she illustrates how it does influence the way they understand the world, interact with each other, and teach children. This eye-opening text is important reading for educators, parents, and scholars alike.
