This study examines the factors that helped Ghanaian-born immigrant students to strategize how to combine their multiple worlds of families, schools, teachers, and peers to affect academic engagement within contexts of school and classroom situations. It also explored teachers’ perception and understanding of the sociocultural and past educational experiences of immigrant students from Ghana.
This study investigates how district administrators, school administrators, pre-K–3 teachers, and bilingual first graders within a school district serving Latina/o immigrant families think about the role of agency in early learning. Our findings suggest that even in supportive, academically successful districts, deficit thinking at any level can justify narrow, rote types of instruction that ultimately impact the types of messages young children receive about learning and being a learner.
This study examines the associations among a multicultural teacher culture, pupils’ perceptions of teachers’ multicultural educational practices, and the ethnic prejudice of Flemish secondary-school pupils, controlling for ethnic school composition and various sociodemographic characteristics that have been shown to be related to ethnic prejudice.
This study explores the ways in which emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions, or those postsecondary institutions that enroll between 15% and 24% Latina/o college students, contribute to civic engagement for diverse college students. Findings show that students’ perceptions of their academic validation and of a curriculum of inclusion in the classroom, as well as their involvement in campus-facilitated diversity programs, positively predict their civic engagement.
This longitudinal ethnographic study follows the college choice experiences of two-high performing English learners (ELs) from junior year to high school graduation. It investigates why even high-achieving ELs have limited access to four-year college.

This ethnographic study examined the community experiences and family–school relationships of Black parents in a predominantly White suburb. The findings suggest a need to understand parents’ experiences and engagement within and across both school and community contexts, particularly for parents of color in predominantly White settings in which schools may mirror or compound the microaggressions they may experience in nonschool settings.
This article presents two patterns in how novice teachers connect issues of race and classroom management. The first approach works to obscure issues of systemic racism, whereas the latter highlights such issues.
This paper presents a yearlong case study of a graduate program that, for the last decade, has trained about 10% of the Black Ph.D.’s in physics nationally. The analysis invites education scholars to consider the boundaries that individuals and institutions negotiate and manipulate as part of their equity efforts.
This article aims to explore the unique impacts of homelessness—above and beyond poverty—on students’ academic growth.

This article takes a unique approach methodologically and conceptually to examine the context, culture, norms, and assumptions embedded within the tenure system at predominantly White research universities.
This article describes how and why youth engage in making in an after-school, youth-focused, community-based makerspace program. Using a mobilities of learning framework, authors discuss how youth appropriated and repurposed the process of making, and unpack how the program attempted to value and negotiate youths’ ways of making from an equity-oriented perspective.
