(M)othering Labeled Children by María Cioè-Peña
This book takes a distinctive approach to exploring the experiences and identities of minoritized Latinx mothers who are raising a child who is labeled as both an emergent bilingual and dis/abled. It showcases relationships between families and schools and reveals the myriad of ways in which school-based decisions regarding disability, language and academic placement impact family dynamics. Treating the mothers as experts, this book uses testimonios to explore not only what mothers know but also how they develop funds of knowledge and how they apply them to their child's education. The stories shed light on how mothers perceive their child's disability, how they engage with their child and the value they place on bilingualism. The narratives reveal the complex lives mothers lead and the ways in which they strive to meet the academic and socioemotional needs of their children, regardless of the financial, physical and emotional costs to them. This book has significant implications for researchers and professionals working in bilingual education, special education, inclusive education and disability studies in education.

An African American Dilemma by Zoë Burkholder
An African American Dilemma offers the first social history of northern Black debates over school integration versus separation from the 1840s to the present. Since Brown v. Board of Education in 1954 Americans have viewed school integration as a central tenet of the Black civil rights movement. Yet, school integration was not the only--or even always the dominant--civil rights strategy. At times, African Americans also fought for separate, Black controlled schools dedicated to racial uplift and community empowerment. An African American Dilemma offers a social history of these debates within northern Black communities from the 1840s to the present. Drawing on sources including the Black press, school board records, social science studies, the papers of civil rights activists, and court cases, it reveals that northern Black communities, urban and suburban, vacillated between a preference for either school integration or separation during specific eras. Yet, there was never a consensus. It also highlights the chorus of dissent, debate, and counter-narratives that pushed families to consider a fuller range of educational reforms. A sweeping historical analysis that covers the entire history of public education in the North, this work complicates our understanding of school integration by highlighting the diverse perspectives of Black students, parents, teachers, and community leaders all committed to improving public education. It finds that Black school integrationists and separatists have worked together in a dynamic tension that fueled effective strategies for educational reform and the Black civil rights movement, a discussion that continues to be highly charged in present-day schooling choices.

The Autism Industrial Complex by Alicia A. Broderick
Autism--a concept that barely existed 75 years ago--currently feeds multiple, multi-billion-dollar-a-year, global industries. In The Autism Industrial Complex: How Branding, Marketing, and Capital Investment Turned Autism into Big Business, Alicia A. Broderick analyzes how we got from the 11 children first identified by Leo Kanner in 1943 as "autistic" to the billion-dollar autism industries that are booming today. Broderick argues that, within the Autism Industrial Complex (AIC), almost anyone can capitalize on--and profit from--autism, and she also shows us how. The AIC has not always been there: it was built, conjured, created, manufactured, produced, not out of thin air, but out of ideologies, rhetorics, branding, business plans, policy lobbying, media saturation, capital investment, and the bodies of autistic people. Broderick excavates the 75-year-long history of the concept of autism, and shows us how the AIC--and indeed, autism today--can only be understood within capitalism itself. The Autism Industrial Complexis essential reading for a wide variety of audiences, from autistic activists, to professionals in the autism industries, to educators, to parents, to graduate students in public policy, (special) education, psychology, economics, and rhetoric. Perfect for courses such as: Introduction to Critical Autism Studies; Disability Studies--Theory, Policy, Practice; Disability & Rhetoric; Disability & Cultural Studies; Doctoral Seminar in Disability Studies; Cultural Foundations of Disability in Education

Bilingualism and Bilingual Education by David Schwarzer (Editor) ; Mary Petrón (Editor) and Clarena Larrotta (Editor)
Bilingualism and Bilingual Education: Conceptos Fundamentales explores relevant concepts of bilingualism for pre-service Spanish/English bilingual teachers in the United States. This volume is reader friendly while presenting complex theoretical content. It is the first of its kind to seamlessly switch between English and Spanish languages for academic purposes. This book fills a gap in the academic literature related to translanguaging as a modern and global phenomenon. The authors invite bilingual educators to develop translingual classrooms with bilingual students in which academic English and Spanish are intentionally mixed. Volume contributors center their discussions on theory, practice, and action as they reflect on their own bilingual journeys. Features such as glossary terms, discussion questions, and intentional reflection on each author's bilingual journey make it innovative and a must read in all bilingual teacher preparation programs in the nation.

Challenging the One Best System by Katrina E. Bulkley; Julie A. Marsh; Katharine O. Strunk; Douglas N. Harris; Ayesha K. Hashim
In Challenging the One Best System, a team of leading education scholars offers a rich comparative analysis of the set of urban education governance reforms collectively known as the "portfolio management model." They investigate the degree to which this model--a system of schools operating under different types of governance and with different degrees of autonomy--challenges the standard structure of district governance famously characterized by David Tyack as "the one best system." The authors examine the design and enactment of the portfolio management model in three major cities: New Orleans, Los Angeles, and Denver. They identify the five interlocking mechanisms at the core of the model--planning and oversight, choice, autonomy, human capital, and school supports--and show how these are implemented differently in each city. Using rich qualitative data from extensive interviews, the authors trace the internal tensions and tradeoffs that characterize these systems and highlight the influence of historical and contextual factors as well. Most importantly, they question whether the portfolio management model represents a fundamental restructuring of education governance or more incremental change, and whether it points in the direction of meaningful improvement in school practices. Drawing on a rigorous, multimethod study, Challenging the One Best System represents a significant contribution to our understanding of system-level change in education.

Constructing Authentic Relationships in Clinical Practice by Jade Logan; Brad Van Eeden-Moorefield; Scott Browning
"This essential text explores the intersectionality of the self in therapeutic practice, bringing together theoretical foundations and practical implications to provide clear guidance for students and practitioners. Bringing together a collection of insightful and experienced clinicians, this book examines the ways in which intersectionality influences all phases of clinical and supervisory work, from outreach, assessment, and through to termination. Integrating research with clinical practice, chapters not only examine the theoretical, intersectional location of the self for the therapist, client, or supervisee, but they also consider how this social identity effects the therapeutic process and, crucially, work with clients. The book includes first-hand accounts, case studies, and reflections to demonstrate how interactions are influenced by gender, race, and sexuality, offering practical ideas about how to work intentionally and ethically with clients. Engaging, informative, and practical, this book is essential reading for students, supervisors, family, marriage, and couple therapists, and clinical social workers who want to work confidently with a range of clients, as well as clinical professionals interested in the role of intersectionality in their work"--

Devotional Hindu Dance : A Return to the Sacred (eBook) by Sabrina D. MisirHiralall
This book sheds light on the purpose of Hindu dance as devotional. Dr. Sabrina D. MisirHiralall explains the history of Hindu dance and how colonization caused the dance form to move from sacred to a Westernized system that emphasizes culture. Postcolonialism is a main theme throughout this text, as religion and culture do not remain static. MisirHiralall points to a postcolonial return to Hindu dance as a religious and sacred dance form while positioning Hindu dance in the Western culture in which she lives.

Gareth B. Matthews, the Child's Philosopher by Maughn Rollins Gregory (Editor); Megan Jane Laverty (Editor)
Gareth B. Matthews, The Child's Philosopher　brings together groundbreaking essays by　renowned American philosopher Gareth B.　Matthews in　three　fields　he helped to initiate:　philosophy in children's literature, philosophy for children, and philosophy of childhood.　In addition, contemporary scholars critically assess Matthews' pioneering efforts and his legacy. Gareth B. Matthews (1929-2011) was a specialist in ancient and medieval philosophy who had conversations with young children, discovering that they delight　in　philosophical　puzzlement　and　that their philosophical thinking often enriched his own understanding. Those conversations became the impetus for a substantial component of Matthews' scholarship,　from which this book features essays spanning the length of his career.　Contemporary contributors to the book critically evaluate Matthews' scholarship, showing where he broke new ground and identifying developments and debates in the fields he helped to initiate. They take up pressing challenges, including biased idealizations of childhood in children's literature;　the　tensions between teaching philosophy to, and doing philosophy with young people; the merits of theorizing childhood without theorizing children; and　how professional philosophy at once　desires　and resists　a return to childhood. This second volume in the　Philosophy for Children Founders　series is an important resource　for philosophers,　educators,　and　anyone interested in children's philosophical thinking, developmental psychology, what it means to philosophize with children, the nature of childhood, and how children's literature goes philosophical. It will guide and inspire those who share Matthews' conviction that the impulse to philosophize begins in early childhood. Contributors (in addition to Gareth B. Matthews): Stephanie Burdick-Shepherd, Cristina Cammarano, Claire Cassidy, Stanley Cavell, Maughn Rollins Gregory, Jennifer Glaser, Walter Omar Kohan, Megan Jane Laverty, Jana Mohr Lone, Karin Murris, Peter Shea, Susan M. Turner, Susannah Sheffer.

Higher Education's Looming Collapse by Stephen V. Coffin (Editor)
Higher education must implement new ways of achieving social justice and performing the business of education to survive the impending shakeout stemming from increasing competition for enrollment, operating costs, and price sensitivity plus decreasing state aid, net tuition, endowment income, and college-bound high school graduates. Universities that survive the shakeout will achieve financial sustainability, educational excellence, and social justice while providing equal educational opportunity and resource equity by implementing the book's best practices, strategies, and holistic budgeting model.

Integrations by Lawrence Blum, Zoë Burkholder
The promise of a free, high-quality public education is supposed to guarantee every child a shot at the American dream. But our widely segregated schools mean that many children of color do not have access to educational opportunities equal to those of their white peers. In Integrations, historian Zoë Burkholder and philosopher Lawrence Blum investigate what this country's long history of school segregation means for achieving just and equitable educational opportunities in the United States. Integrations focuses on multiple marginalized groups in American schooling: African Americans, Native Americans, Latinxs, and Asian Americans. The authors show that in order to grapple with integration in a meaningful way, we must think of integration in the plural, both in its multiple histories and in the many possible definitions of and courses of action for integration. Ultimately, the authors show, integration cannot guarantee educational equality and justice, but it is an essential component of civic education that prepares students for life in our multiracial democracy.

Reading, Writing, and Racism by Bree Picower
An examination of how whiteness and racial bias are systemically entrenched in schools, and radical strategies to transform teacher education programs and advance racial justice An examination of how curriculum choices can perpetuate White supremacy, and radical strategies for how schools and teacher education programs can disrupt and transform racism in education When racist curriculum "goes viral" on social media, it is typically dismissed as an isolated incident from a "bad" teacher. Educator Bree Picower, however, holds that racist curriculum isn't an anomaly. It's a systemic problem that reflects how Whiteness is embedded and reproduced in education. In Reading, Writing, and Racism, Picower argues that White teachers must reframe their understanding about race in order to advance racial justice and that this must begin in teacher education programs. Drawing on her experience teaching and developing a program that prepares teachers to focus on social justice and antiracism, Picower demonstrates how teachers' ideology of race, consciously or unconsciously, shapes how they teach race in the classroom. She also examines current examples of racist curricula that have gone viral to demonstrate how Whiteness is entrenched in schools and how this reinforces racial hierarchies in the younger generation. With a focus on institutional strategies, Picower shows how racial justice can be built into programs across the teacher education pipeline-from admission to induction. By examining the who, what, why, and how of racial justice teacher education, she provides radical possibilities for transforming how teachers think about, and teach about, race in their classrooms.

Teachable Moments by Eric J. Weiner
Teachable Moments is a collection of essays about education, cultural politics and practices of self-care that are connected by their focus on the essential lessons we can learn from everyday experiences in times of crisis. The essays are "critical" in their attention to how power operates in the spheres of politics, culture and education as a veil that hides various mechanisms of influence and control. These mechanisms, like cogs in a well-oiled machine, turn quietly and consistently, forming the backdrop against which the drama of daily life unfolds. Although the essays in this collection can stand on their own, they are in deep, yet not always obvious, conversations with each other. A discussion about the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of living with and caring for a child with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) merges into trenchant examinations of Trumpism, neofascism, and white supremacy, which then dovetail into a cultural study of boots and sexuality. Disparate and wide-ranging in subject matter, these essays weave together a story about what it means to live an engaged life
