This pioneering volume applies critical whiteness studies in a variety of educational contexts in the United Kingdom. The author uses ethnographic, biographical and documentary research to show how whiteness 'works' in education. The book also considers policy issues, and discusses how critical whiteness studies might function in anti-racist practice, shows how 'white supremacy' continues to dominate educational discourse and practice and discusses how this can be resisted.
The first collected book which uses critical whiteness studies to examine education outside of the United States
Uses a range of empirical techniques to interrogate whiteness within education in a number of settings (eg it moves beyond schooling)
For those interested in 'race' issues in education, the book explores a new paradigm though which racism can be explored and confronted
