OF THE MONTH
Despite the Best Intentions: How Racial Inequality Thrives in Good Schools by Amanda E. Lewis & John B. Diamond is a book that I've had to read for multiple courses during my undergraduate career so far. The book is part of the reason for my interest in the School-to-Prison Pipeline and dismantling inequalities within the school system that disadvantage marginalized communities. Lewis and Diamond do a great job at explaining how "de-segregated" schools on the surface still have problems with achieving fully integrated classrooms. The work definitely inspires critical reflection on our own teaching practices, and shows that the system still requires change that we should strive to work towards!
