  • "Critical race theory examines the social construction of the law, administrative policy, electoral politics, and political discourse in the U.S. Race Is ... Race Isn't presents a group of qualitative research studies, literature reviews, and commentaries that collectively articulate critical race theory in secondary and post-secondary educational settings. The editors of this book explore links and conflicts with other areas of difference, including language, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation, with the goal of opening a dialogue about how critical race theory can be incorporated into education research methodologies."--Jacket.
