EQUITY MATTERS EP. 1: Academic Apartheid




Sean J. Drake joins to discuss his recent book, Academic Apartheid: Race and the Criminalization of Failure in an American Suburb. Drawing on more than two years of ethnographic observation and dozens of interviews at two distinct high schools in a racially diverse Southern California suburb, Drake unveils hidden institutional mechanisms that lead to the overt segregation and symbolic criminalization of Black, Latinx, and lower-income students who struggle academically. Hosted/edited/mixed by Tyler Bond.
