(p.1) Introduction What School Leaders Need to Know
The Color of Mind

Derrick Darby

John L. Rury

University of Chicago Press

The introduction sets up the main issues of the book, which argues that the "Color of Mind" has served to rationalize racially exclusionary school practices and unequal educational opportunities, and the effects of these, in turn, have worked to sustain this racial ideology, making the Color of Mind and educational inequality mutually reinforcing. The authors further argue that the Color of Mind is the rotten foundation of black-white educational achievement gaps and educational opportunity gaps in the United States.

Keywords:   Color of Mind, exclusionary practices, racial ideology, educational inequality, black-white achievement gap, United States school system
