ALL COURSES ARE OFFERED VIA ZOOM
In this course, we will study our country’s history of school segregation, the resistance to implementing the mandates of Brown v. Board of Education, the longstanding implications of opportunity gaps for marginalized students, and how special education has served as a vehicle for both addressing student needs and replicating and reinforcing school segregation. We will read and discuss Carol Anderson’s “Burning Brown to the Ground,” several articles that include case histories reflective of the trauma and losses resulting from discriminatory policies, and sources that describe special education policy and present relevant, recent data about students and special education.
