This chapter tells the story of how the Color of Mind permeated America's education system in the nineteenth century, institutionalizing the racial achievement gap. It shows how this racial ideology contributed to the idea that white and black races should receive different types of schooling, which was a critical step in constructing the racial achievement gap.
