Summary "How should teachers respond when children ask challenging questions about race? How should teachers handle the use of the "N-word" or discuss "achievement gaps" with colleagues? How can teachers avoid unwittingly making children of color speak on behalf of their entire group? In more than fifty original pieces written especially for this groundbreaking book, Everyday Antiracism offers practical advice for teachers and parents." From the bookjacket
