About this item

Although colorism is a well-known concept in the social science community, few scholars have investigated its role and implications in the field of education. This volume presents the connections between race and colorism in P-16 schooling by questioning how variations in skin tone, as well as related features such as hair texture and eye color, complicate the educational experiences of students. It traces the historical foundations of colorism in the United States while outlining its contemporary relevance in U.S. education.

Through empirical studies and ongoing debates in educational policy, this volume explores colorism from an international standpoint by focusing on immigrants and refugee populations. It is one of the first scholarly works to explicitly situate colorism within educational domains and demonstrates how this form of discrimination affects students, families and professionals.
