What is the difference between equality and equity? How might diversity-related policies and practices shape educators’ work in schools? And how do these policies affect students? Take an up-close look at two different middle schools and explore how whiteness operates in our educational system. Examine issues of equity and diversity and begin to imagine possibilities for disrupting inequity and educating against whiteness. Dr. Angelina E. Castagno, an Associate Professor of Educational Leadership and Foundations at Northern Arizona University was trained as an educational anthropologist and studies institutions, policies, and the ways students and communities engage systems of race and power.
