Sailing Against the Wind: African Americans and Women in U.S. Education (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

Edited by Lomotey, Kofi

Experienced American educators discuss the impact of social inequalities created by racism and sexism on the U.S. educational system. Sailing Against the Wind addresses the issue of inequality in U.S. education. The book includes exemplary programs to show where educators are add...ressing problems of racial and gender inequity. The authors are experienced practitioners who work in the educational institutions that they describe and analyze. The consistent theme is that only through political opposition to the status quo and through a demand for social justice will the system change, will inequities be eliminated, and will existing power relationships in society be altered. This book makes the issues 'live' in the descriptions of people closest to these issues. The writing is more straightforward than in many other books and provides concrete information for guiding the preparation of teachers and administrators at all levels of education. The focus on generating specific solutions to the problems identified in the chapters is a unique and valuable contribution to the literature . -- Betty Merchant, University of Illinois
