While racism continues to be a persistent and pervasive issue in our schools nationwide, the professionals charged with creating safe and nurturing educational environments have few resources available to address racism directly. Racialized Schools is on the leading edge of books that do just that and includes the latest research and praxis to help school personnel confront racism in a professional manner. A national qualitative survey of students, school counselors, teachers, and administrators sets the stage by providing readers with a 360-degree picture of today's schools and the many ways racism creeps into the lives of our students. The authors present a number of different models and perspectives on understanding and addressing racism, beginning with their own personal and professional experiences. Significant attention is also given to empowering school personnel and students to become racially aware, sensitive, and competent to address racism and racial conflicts in schools. Racialized Schools is not only a comprehensive look at racism within our schools; it is also a practical tool for use by teachers, school counselors, administrators, etc., for implementing preventative measures to combat racism directly.

Reviews and Endorsements:

"In a single, succinct, tightly organized text, school psychologists Jesse Brinson and Shannon Smith—faculty members of the CACREP-approved school psychology program at UNLV—present a comprehensive overview of how race and racism operate in modern schools. The text will engage teachers, guidance counselors, and general K-12 school personnel."

—William E. Cross, Jr., PhD, professor emeritus at the CUNY Graduate Center and coordinator of the higher education program at the University of Denver

"In an increasingly diverse society and student population, it is critical that school personnel are cognizant of their conscious and nonconscious biases and expectations and that these professionals are keenly aware of the ways in which these tendencies may be interpreted as racist. This book is a must-have resource for education professionals, both preservice and inservice. It sheds great insight and provides excellent practical examples that administrators, teachers, and school counselors could use to improve their effectiveness with students of color."

—James L. Moore III, PhD, associate provost, director, and professor, the Ohio State University

"Racialized Schools is a significant and timely contribution. This text ensures that professional educators, university trainers, government officials and mental-health practitioners have the resources to address racism within education and beyond. Moreover, the national survey utilized to gather important facts from those involved in the educational enterprise provides rich evidence of the need to focus on this topic from a federal, state, and local policy and curriculum level. The authors present numerous examples of their abilities to provide enlightening analyses of race in the schools through illustrations, case studies, and their lived experiences. I highly recommend this fresh, direct, and clear approach to an intractable issue."

—Joseph R. Morris, PhD, professor of counselor education and counseling psychology at Western Michigan University
