The racial justice in urban schooling minor is designed for students interested in the intersections of race, social class, language status, gender or sexual orientation, and how those impact educational equity and social justice. Students learn to recognize educational practices that marginalize students who are diverse in terms of their race, class, language or gender status, and how to support educational equity through alternative approaches. Students will reimagine teaching materials and techniques that hold the possibility for a more equitable and just society.
The racial justice in urban schooling minor supports students’ exploration of their interest in graduate studies in education or activism on educational issues. This undergraduate minor will appeal to students who are deeply interested in education as a social issue, whether or not they want to become a classroom teacher.
