Sabina E. Vaught is Assistant Professor of Urban Education at Tufts University.
"Beautifully written and sophisticatedly argued, this book is a must read for anyone interested in race, policy, and schooling. The text is well informed, rigorously researched, complicated in its analysis, and rhetorically deep. Vaught's careful analysis of schooling and its large policy-related issues is masterful; the story she tells is simultaneously heartbreaking and all too familiar." - Bryan McKinley Jones Brayboy, Arizona State University and University of Alaska Fairbanks "Sabina Vaught has captured, with poignancy and precision, the complexity of racialized educational inequity. Vaught skillfully draws on CRT to ground her analysis and demonstrates the ways in which racism persists to disenfranchise 'the least of these'-our nation's children." - Adrienne D. Dixson, coeditor of Critical Race Theory in Education: All God's Children Got a Song "Vaught addresses the interrelationship of a number of important issues with insight, clarity, personal experience, and a call to (re)commit ourselves to the pursuit of equality and justice for all students." - Alice McIntyre, author of Making Meaning of Whiteness: Exploring Racial Identity with White Teachers
