Looking for Educational Equity: The Consequences of Relying on Brown
by Kris D. Gutiérrez & Nathalia E. Jaramillo - 2006
This chapter attempts to begin a conversation about how so many of us in the educational and academic communities have come to believe that educational equity could be mediated by legal measures and federal and local reforms without transformation of the historical practices and ideologies that preserve supremacy and “White innocence”—a racialized analytic concept we adapt from Gotanda (2004). We focus on the landmark Brown v. Board of Education (1954) decision, the theme of this volume, as the context for a discussion of how race and race relations in this country continue to signal a need for race-conscious practices that go beyond the limitations of legal remedies and their monitoring apparatus.
