Abstract

Even though race is the focal issue, the chapters in this volume show how race intersects with many other social markers such as poverty, gender, disability, and sexuality to shape educational outcomes. The issues are complex, and this volume aims to illuminate the contours of race as it intertwines and intersects with other social markers to limit or expand opportunities. The chapters invite reflection and engagement in the pursuit of interventions, research, and policies designed to enhance social justice in education.
