This course will investigate the role of schools as organizations in race, class, and gender inequalities in education in the contemporary U.S. We will read ethnographies of education and learn about the ways in which resources are inequitably distributed to schools. Guest speakers will include local educators. We will consider all levels of education, from preschool to graduate education. We will also consider the possibilities for school reform—and the role of schools in securing social equality
