This qualitative study describes urban secondary teachers’ world history instruction that aims to engage—rather than ignore or misrepresent—Indigenous peoples and knowledges. Three promising practices emerged as themes, and their efficacy appears tied to teachers’ ongoing relationships and personal resonance with local Indigenous peoples, knowledges, and lands.

Using data from North Carolina students, this study examines how socioeconomic status (SES) influences students’ college choices regarding the pursuit of a STEM degree. Multilevel logistic analysis of 17,120 students and analysis of 25 in-depth interviews with low-SES students conclude that there are important socioeconomic differences in the pathways toward STEM, mainly given students’ dissimilarities in opportunities and resources to learn, and the insufficient information that low-SES students have regarding STEM majors.

Authentic human connection reflected in and through positive relationships with Black boys is the result of frequent interpersonal interactions with adults that make them feel valued for the tremendous worth they have as human beings despite growing up in a society defined by antiblackness, the residual consequence of chattel slavery in the U.S. Data from seven focus groups with 28 young Black men and boys ages 8–21 years reveal these participants’ keen awareness of the ways they are generally misunderstood in U.S. society and the significance of educators’ race-gender perceptions of them in building positive relationships that establish and sustain human connection.

This study uses goal-setting theory to assess teachers’ collaborative partnerships created through Tennessee’s Instructional Partnership Initiative (IPI). Drawing on interviews with 48 participating teachers, the analysis characterizes IPI teacher partnerships based on their goal specificity and commitment—two theoretical constructs commonly used in organizational and management research on employee performance but rarely applied in education—to consider how these features of collaborative work facilitate learning opportunities.

In this article, the authors use board bylaws to examine the requirements for service on public boards of higher education. The authors find that the majority of boards lack or have minimal formal qualifications for the trusteeship, and they question whether the lack of this key information may help to perpetuate inequity in board representation.

This mixed methods study examines 433 preservice teachers’ opportunities to learn to teach English language learners (ELLs) across different subprograms within a predominantly White teacher education program in the United States. Findings suggest that the program’s “the same for all” pan-diversity integration approach to teacher preparation has served as a collective equity trap that fails to equip preservice teachers with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they need to successfully teach ELLs and reproduces inequity for ELLs.

Grounded in an ethnographic study, this article presents how testimonios gathered in Spanish with Spanish-speaking mothers serve as counter-narratives to research that positions them as disengaged. The article illuminates how mothers are systemically denied authority in their children’s education and how they subvert attempts to minimize their parental presence, and closes with a preliminary framework for culturally sustaining research.

In this article, we use field theory to examine survey (n = 1,549) and interview (n = 100) data on the ways that different forms of capital operate in college students’ lives to restrict their ability to pursue a college internship. Although internships are widely promoted in higher education, our findings demonstrate that 64% (n = 676) of students who did not take an internship had in fact wanted to but were kept from doing so by the need to work, a heavy course load, a lack of positions, and insufficient pay. The data also reveal differences in how students experience these obstacles based on their major, geographic location, socioeconomic status, and first-generation student status, highlighting the need for postsecondary institutions to actively institute support systems to help these students locate and then successfully pursue an internship or other form of work-based learning.

This study shows how a practice common in research and accountability policy of rank ordering schools based on value-added model estimates can mask troubling differences in school effectiveness, especially differential effectiveness by race.

Through a systematic literature review on 87 articles, this study’s purpose is to gain insight into what the literature says about educating immigrant children through the lens of social justice in Hong Kong (HK), Turkey, and the United States (U.S.), as each context presents a distinct case of immigration. In light of documented inequities experienced by immigrant children, we conduct our review within a framework of teaching immigrant students globally within, versus parallel to, the field of teaching for social justice.

Based on a 26-month ethnography of a tabletop role-playing game community, this chapter looks at how the triangulation of systems, setting, and player identity reinforces particular assumption within the game and beyond it. While built on data from an out-of-school learning setting, I explore pedagogical possibilities of exploring the systems, settings, and participants in public schooling contexts.

In the late 1960s, after the longest student strike in the nation resulted in the San Francisco State University’s development of Ethnic Studies--eventually becoming the first College of Ethnic Studies--we found ourselves still fighting for Ethnic Studies. Although the number of Ethnic Studies programs, curriculum, and courses have been growing throughout the nation, we find ourselves still fighting for Ethnic Studies. As the fight to define what content should be included in Ethnic Studies continues, there has also been an exploration of what effective pedagogy in Ethnic Studies looks like. There has been expansive thinking about what can be learned from Ethnic Studies that transcends the field and influences, shapes, and frames the way other subjects and courses are taught. In this paper, we build off the research base focused on Ethnic Studies pedagogies to offer a conceptualization of Community Responsive Pedagogy (CRP). We begin with historicizing the origins of Community Responsive Pedagogy in Ethnic Studies and then provide examples of how CRP can be applied both in Ethnic Studies classrooms and beyond.

Critical consciousness (CC) is an awareness and reflection of inequities, political efficacy, and agency in response to injustice. Similarly, sociopolitical development (SPD) is the process of developing a critical understanding, skill set, and emotional depth to enact individual agency against oppressive forces. This case study explores Black female youth as they co-construct CC toward SPD in Near Peer, a two-year tutoring and mentoring school-based program.

To complement a state reform initiative to advance personalized learning, a teacher education program remodeled its curriculum to include critical service-learning to enhance community-engaged learning. This qualitative study shows the way the program fostered learning outcomes that broadened understanding of community, including cultural humility, and advanced attentiveness on individual learners, including pedagogical practices to support diverse learners.
