The emergence of Critical Race Theory (CRT) marked a pivotal moment in the history of racial politics within the academy and powerfully influenced the broader conversation about race and racism in the United States and beyond. Comprised of articles by some of most prominent scholars in the field of CRT, this groundbreaking anthology is the first to pull together both the foundational writings and more recent scholarship on the cultural and racial politics of schooling. The collection offers a variety of critical perspectives on race, analyzing the causes, consequences and manifestations of race, racism, and inequity in schooling. Unique to this updated edition are a variety of contributions by key CRT scholars published within the last five years, including an all-new section dedicated to the intersections of race and dis/ability within contemporary schooling. Each section concludes with a set of questions and discussion points to further engage with the issues discussed in the readings. This revised edition of a landmark publication documents the progress to date of the CRT movement and acts to further spur developments in education policy, critical pedagogy, and social justice, making it a crucial resource for students and educators more

Review quote

"This collection details well all of the ways that an intellectual movement has moved beyond its adolescence while still remaining true to its core principles and values. In covering ground from Affirmative Action to DisCrit to the intersections between white supremacy and white allies, the second edition of this reader demonstrates how CRT's most substantive insights and exciting research are taking place in education policy and law." --Tom I. Romero, II J.D., Ph.D., Assistant Provost for Inclusive Excellence Research and Curricular Initiatives, University of Denver "Foundations of Critical Race Theory in Education is a comprehensive text that smartly includes both the germinal legal literature in CRT and education. The selection of articles covers a range of topics and themes that shows not only the breadth of scholarly productivity, but also the depth of the literature as it relates to racialized educational inequity. This second edition includes newer literature that takes up newer areas of foci for CRT scholars in education, namely, Disability Studies and Intersectionality. This important book will be a staple for many courses and a valuable resource for any scholar who takes the study of race and CRT seriously." --Adrienne D. Dixson, Associate Professor, Critical Race Theory and Education, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaignshow more
