We explore race and ethnicity in education and the family.  Our objectives this week are to:

    • Recall      historical racial battles over education for Native Americans and African      Americans;

 

    • Determine      how social capital, cultural capital, and stereotype threat reproduce      inequalities in education;

 

    • Assess  whiteness in the American educational system;

 

    • Dissect      the history of the family recognizing how the institution has changed      since colonialism and slavery;

 

  • Examine  the history of the “one-drop rule” and its impact on interracial      relationships; and
