Deculturalization and the Struggle for Equality, by Joel Spring

Joel Spring’s history of school policies imposed on dominated groups in the United States examines the concept of deculturalization—the use of schools to strip away family languages and cultures and replace them with those of the dominant group. The focus is on the education of dominated groups forced to become citizens in territories conquered by the United States, including Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, Latino Americans, and Hawaiians.

  • Extensively revised throughout to reflect the dramatic national events since the prior edition, the Ninth Edition discusses the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, increased educational inequality related to the pandemic, concerns about institutional racism and White nationalism, disputes about the interpretation of U.S. history, and debates over cultural and racial identity.
