Privileged thinking in today's schools is alive and well and shows its ugly head in a variety of ways that often go undetected (or are not addressed) by the educators down in the trenches. In this collection of scenarios and episodes, many of which were experienced by the authors in their years as school administrators, you will find an array of provocative examples of social injustice in the classroom, and what you can do to prevent it in your own school community. As the authors candidly and vulnerablyreveal their own "blind spots" and biases that occurred "on their watch," readers will be able to take a look in the mirror as well, thus taking a critical step in better advocating for those students "left on the fringe" in classrooms and schools.
