Deculturalization and the Struggle for Equality: A Brief History of the Education of Dominated Cultures in the United States
This is a concise history of Anglo-American racism and school policies affecting dominated groups in the United States. Spring focuses on the educational, legal and social construction of race and racism, and on educational practices related to deculturalization, segregation, and the civil rights movement. He emphasizes issues of power and control in schools and how the dominant Anglo class has stripped away the culture of minority peoples in the US and replaced it with the dominant culture. Spring gives voice to the often-overlooked perspectives of African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic/Latino Americans, and Native Americans.
