In the U.S., racism is a prominently widespread root of oppression. Black people in America, specifically, have suffered from centuries of discrimination and still struggle to receive the same privileges of their white peers. Across the globe, there are groups that face similar struggles. Discrimination and oppression on the basis of religion, ethnicity, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, political-affiliation, and caste are just a few of the categories of oppression globally. Since education is widely seen as the root for any widespread societal change, it is essential that educators and systems of education enact the changes that need to occur to achieve equity for the groups being oppressed. Educators and systems of education play an integral role in the disruption and dismantling of perpetuated systems of oppression and systematic discrimination toward oppressed groups. In this Handbook, the origins of these systems of discrimination will be contextualized and serve as the foundation on which authors build readers’ understandings of existing societal biases and oppression within historical framing. This collection of work will serve as a resource for those striving to create educational processes, programming and pathways designed to face oppression head on, deconstruct systems built upon bias, mitigate the devastating effects of discrimination, and promote equality.
