Mica Pollock. Which acts by educators are ''racist'' and which are ''antiracist''? How can an educator constructively discuss complex issues of race with students and colleagues? In Everyday Antiracism leading educators deal with the most challenging questions about race in school, offering invaluable and effective advice. Contributors including Beverly Daniel Tatum, Sonia Nieto, and Pedro Noguera describe concrete ways to analyze classroom interactions that may or may not be ''racial,'' deal with racial inequality and ''diversity,'' and teach to high standards across racial lines.

Educators dealing with race in schools encounter a quandary rooted in systemic oppression. Mica Pollock compiles the experience and wisdom of over 60 leading educators and scholars into a volume aimed at counteracting and interrupting racial inequality and racism in schools and society. Antiracism requires not treating people as racial group members when that is harmful, and recognizing experiences along racial lines when that helps people to analyze life events and equalize opportunity. Deciding which antiracist move to make and when to make it requires hard thinking about life in educational settings. Everyday Antiracism serves as a powerful tool to support educators to open up and stay in conversations about race, engage promptly in analysis of the ways students experience school and classrooms, and initiate action towards equitable schools. These questions can push educators to think deeply about and take action toward infusing the CES Common Principle of democracy and equity in their interactions.
