- Diane Rehm Show - Texas Textbooks And Teaching The Civil War And America’s History Of Racial Segregation
Texas Textbooks And Teaching The Civil War And America’s History Of Racial Segregation Diane Rehm Show, Wednesday, Jul 08 2015 • 10 a.m. (ET) "Five years ago, [Texas] state education officials created a stir when they changed curriculum guidelines to address what some on the board of education saw as a liberal bias. Those changes were incorporated into new textbooks. Now the textbooks are ready for delivery to about 5 million Texas students when school begins in the fall. Critics say the revisions whitewash America’s history of racial segregation and distort the causes of the Civil War. Texas officials dispute the charges." Guests Isabel Wilkerson Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of "The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration." Emma Brown education reporter, The Washington Post. Robert Hicks community preservationist and author of "The Widow of the South" and "A Separate Country." Donald McLeroy former chairman of the Texas Board of Education. James W.

- Film: First Generation
Narrated by Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood, FIRST GENERATION tells the story of four high school students - an inner city athlete, a small town waitress, a Samoan warrior dancer, and the daughter of migrant field workers - who set out to break the cycle of poverty and bring hope to their families and communities by pursuing a college education.
Shot over the course of three years and featuring some of our nation's top educational experts (Richard Kahlenberg, The Century Foundation; J.B. Schramm, College Summit; Dr. Bill Tierney, University of Southern California), this 95 minute documentary explores the problem of college access faced by first generation and low-income students and how their success has major implications for the future of our nation.
- How Abandonment In Rwandan Genocide Changed Peacekeepers' Role
It's been 20 years since the Rwandan genocide, in which political ideology and ethnic hatred gave license to thousands of Hutus to kill Tutsi families. But ethnic ideology may not have unleashed the genocide if the international community had not stepped back and allowed it to happen.

- Modernizing Crime Statistics: Report 1: Defining and Classifying Crime (2016)
The National Academies Press, 2016 To derive statistics about crime – to estimate its levels and trends, assess its costs to and impacts on society, and inform law enforcement approaches to prevent it – a conceptual framework for defining and thinking about crime is virtually a prerequisite. Developing and maintaining such a framework is no easy task, because the mechanics of crime are ever evolving and shifting: tied to shifts and development in technology, society, and legislation.

- Teaching While White
Where Whiteness Intersects with Antiracist Teaching and Learning More than 80% of teachers in the U.S. are white. But most don’t know that their whiteness matters. Teaching While White (TWW) seeks to move the conversation forward on how to be consciously, intentionally, anti-racist in the classroom. Because "white" does not mean a blank slate. It is a set of assumptions that is the baseline from which everything is judged; it is what passes for normal. This means if you are not white or don’t adhere to those assumptions, you are abnormal or less than. TWW wants to have conversations about those assumptions: what they are, how they impact our students, and how we can confront our assumptions to promote racial literacy.

Seth Gershenson, Stephen B. Holt, Nicholas W. Papageorge. Economics of Education Review 2016(June);52:209–224 * Teachers are an important source of information for disadvantaged students. * Student fixed-effect estimates show biases in teachers’ expectations for students. * Student–teacher racial mismatch reduces teachers’ expectations for black students. * Black teachers’ expectations for black students are 30–40% higher than non-black teachers’. * Effects are larger for black male students than for black female students.
