“A remarkable account of the legacy of advocacy among parents of children with disabilities in the U.S., with particular attention to the experiences of parents of color. Centered in the theoretical frameworks of DisCrit and intersectionality, the authors take readers through a critical, historical journey of how disabilities have been socially constructed, how parents’ voices have been disregarded by professionals, and how collective parental advocacy efforts have evolved over time.” —Teachers College Record reviews Meeting Families Where They Are: https://www.tcrecord.org/Content.asp?ContentID=23709

What students think about racial justice efforts on campus

#CampusUprisings co-editor Kmt Shockley talks to Inside Higher Ed about student responses to racial justice efforts on campuses: “People who aren’t as affected negatively by the system might have less criticism of it. Those who feel the system is on their back might grade more harshly.”
https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2021/05/06/what-students-think-about-racial-justice-efforts-campus

The latest Student Voice survey shows what college students think about their institutions’ actions in the aftermath and year since George Floyd was killed last May -- and what campus leaders can do now to take bolder steps toward racial justice and equality.
