Beyond silenced voices : class, race, and gender in United States schools by Lois Weis( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 1,191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Resting on the belief that educators must be at the center of informing education policy, the contributors to this revised edition of the classic text raise tough questions that will both haunt and invigorate pre- and in-service educators, as well as veteran teachers. They explore the policies and practices of structuring exclusions, they listen hard to youth living at the margins of race, class, ethnicity, and gender, and they wrestle with fundamental inequalities of space in order to educate for change. Written from the perspective of researchers, policy analysts, teachers, and youth workers, the book reveals a shared belief in education that "could be," and a shared concern about schools that currently reproduce class, race and gender relations, and privilege."--Jacket
The unknown city : lives of poor and working-class young adults by Michelle Fine( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Unknown City Michelle Fine and Lois Weis offer a groundbreaking, theoretically sophisticated ethnography of the lives of young adults, ages 23 to 35, in two large East Coast cities. Analyzing interviews with hundreds of young people, Fine and Weis provide insights into their startling and often harrowing experiences. A major focus of the book is on the "fractures" in American society: how and why those of different races, ethnicities, and genders see the world - and each other - in very different ways. From discussions of black men's ideas on the reasons for inequality to domestic abuse among white working-class women, we see the gulfs that impede attempts to simplify the problems of young adults. We hear their views on everything from the construction of "whiteness" and affirmative action to the economy, education, and the new public spaces of community hope. The Unknown City is sure to shape many key debates about policy and community. Fine and Weis point to what should be done on the national policy level and describe initiatives that serve as oases of hope in our cities today

Charter schools and the corporate makeover of public education : what's at stake? by Michael Fabricant( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book will reset the discourse on charter schooling by systematically exploring the gap between the promise and the performance of charter schools. The authors do not defend the public school system, which for decades has failed primarily poor children of color. Instead, they use empirical evidence to determine whether charter schooling offers an authentic alternative for these children. In concise chapters, they address a series of important questions related to the recent ascent of charter schools and the radical restructuring of public education. This essential introduction includes a detailed history of the charter movement, an analysis of the politics and economics driving the movement, documentation of actual student outcomes, and alternative images of transforming public education to serve all children. This book features: (1) An overview of the key issues surrounding the charter school movement; (2) a reframing of the recent discourse on public school reform; (3) a comprehensive comparison examining the promises of charter schooling against the empirical evidence; (4) An examination of how charter schools impact communities of color and larger public school systems in poor urban areas; and (5) An exploration of the relationships among the rapid ascendance of charter reform, economic decline, and fiscal austerity.

This book is designed to help undergraduate and graduate students begin a discussion about the technicalities, politics, and ethics surrounding qualitative research, focusing on research in the interest of social justice. It offers a view of how two researchers have conceptualized their own research process and renders problematic many of the steps they have taken along the way. Input from student researchers at two New York colleges is also included. Chapter 1, "Cops, Crime, and Violence," offers a concrete example of the two researchers' urban ethnographic work in relation to the product, drawing on research involving 154 in-depth interviews with white, African-American, and Hispanic-American young adults about their experiences since leaving high school. Chapter 2, "a Note on Methods," describes their research methodology. Chapter 3, "Qualitative Research, Representations, and Social Responsibilities," and Chapter 4, "Reflections on the Politics and Methods of Qualitative Work," reflect back on the researchers' work, problematizing the apparently seamless process and offering a variety of methodological and ethical concerns as they and their students experienced them.

The changing politics of education : privatization and the dispossessed lives left behind by Michael Fabricant( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors persuasively argue that the present cascade of reforms to public education is a consequence of a larger intention to shrink government. The startling result is that more of public education's assets and resources are moving to the private sector and to the prison industrial complex. Drawing on various forms of evidence structural, economic, narrative, and youth-generated participatory research the authors reveal new structures and circuits of dispossession and privilege that amount to a clear failure of present policy. Policymaking is at war with the interests of the vast majority of citizens, and especially with urban youth of color. In the final chapter the authors explore democratic principles and offer examples essential to mobilizing, in solidarity with educators, youth, communities, labor, and allied social movements, the kind of power necessary to contest the present direction of public education reform."--Publisher's website
