EDUC 133. Race, Boyhood, and Education
(Cross-listed as BLST 133 )
This seminar examines the lives of Black boys in U.S. schools and classrooms. Black boyhood and Black masculinity are utilized as frameworks to interpret how aspects of school life influence their learning and identities, such as teacher expectations, school discipline policy, and special education referral processes. Rooted in boys’ agency and resistance, its goal is to inform a (re)imagining of educational spaces in ways that cultivate the promise of Black boys, and other boys (and girls) of color.
Eligible for BLST, GSST.
