Racism, Research, and Educational Reform adds to the knowledge base on educational reform, through individual, personal voices. Describing the complexities of multiple levels of engagement, it provides more accessible reading for teachers and the general public than most reform texts. This book also adds to the literature about multiple K-16 partnerships; collaborations between mainstream universities and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU); cross-district school system collaborations; the impact of racism on school reform efforts; communication problems in school collaborations; parent and teacher struggles for equal engagement; and issues of parental equity in school communities of diverse ethnic families.
