Race to Equity
Disrupting Educational InequalityBook - 2005
Race to Equity is a dazzling, detailed view from the inside of the experiments, successes, and mistakes in the Toronto Board of Education's quest to provide truly equitable education for a diverse student body.For almost three decades McCaskell and his colleagues fought to reshape the system. Their attempts to deliver anti-racism, anti-sexism, and anti-homophobia education garnered national and international attention.McCaskell's astute blend of personal reflection and political theory illuminates a time of significant social struggle, cultural transformation, and deep learning. Drawing on a number ofsources--his own memories, interviews with key participants, Board minutes, academic theory on different aspects of the work, and the wealth of documents produced along the way--McCaskell traces narrative threads through the "booming buzzing confusion" of institutional and social transformation. The result is a magical blend of personal reflections and political theory.
