The Long Struggle: Examining New Perspectives on Education Reform
EDST 355
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

Black Teachers' ongoing struggle to enact anti-racist practices and policies while navigating segregation and significant resource challenges provide powerful testimony of the peculiar limitations of traditional urban education reform movements.

This course will help students understand the inextricable links between student achievement, opportunity, and community progress by examining African American teachers' experiences in schools. The historical and present-day experiences of Black teachers will be used to anchor the analysis of education reform through the eyes of too often marginalized communities. This course will review historical narrative, examine present-day policy, and allow students to gain first-hand perspectives from "front-line" education and policy leaders.
