Description : What does it mean to be Asian American? Should Asian American identity be construed primarily in cultural terms or racial terms? And why should contemporary theology care about such questions? Disciplined by Race: Theological Ethics and the Problem of Asian American Identity reveals the critical importance of Asian American experience for contemporary theological debates on race. The book challenges readers to move beyond conventional perceptions of Asian Americans as model minorities and to confront the ways in which Asian Americans are socially restrained by whiteness. Rather than being insulated from the logics of white racism in the modern United States, being Asian American is tragically defined by those logics. Coming to grips with how Asian Americans are disciplined by race reveals the prospects for Asian American self-determination and raises the question of whether resistance to the social demands and allure of whiteness is realistically possible, for Asian Americans and non-Asian Americans alike. ""Joining the growing voices of scholars in Asian American Christian ethics, a nascent discipline within Asian American theology, Ki Joo Choi offers a fresh and highly nuanced social analysis and in-depth ethical reflection on nebulous topics of Asian American identity, race, and culture. Adding new insights and clarity in understanding Asian American experiences of racialization, this book is a wonderful resource for religious scholars and students who are interested in critical race theory."" --Hak Joon Lee, Lewis B. Smedes Professor of Christian Ethics, Fuller Theological Seminary ""Disciplined by Race is provocative and challenging--also personal, eloquent, and inspiring. White people may recognize our culture of 'white supremacy, ' but fail to 'get' how it really works. Obvious 'anti-blackness' feeds off the myth of a 'model minority' that homogenizes and distances Asian-Americans. Choi calls to all marginalized by whiteness, calls out white 'tolerance, ' and calls forth a new kind of solidarity against our country's entrenched racism. A unique and powerful book!"" --Lisa Sowle Cahill, J. Donald Monan Professor, Boston College ""In this highly readable book, a leading Asian American Christian ethicist, Ki Joo Choi, offers a definitive answer to the question: What does it mean to be Asian American in a deeply racialized society? Readers will discover a thoughtful, authentic, and courageous voice, which Asian Americans are called to live out in their everyday struggles, challenges, and joys. This book is an impressive achievement, full of insightful stories and critical reflections."" --Ilsup Ahn, Carl I. Lindberg Professor of Philosophy at North Park University Ki Joo Choi is an associate professor of theological ethics and chair of the Department of Religion at Seton Hall University.

Description : This book questions the accepted origins of the field of International Relations (IR). Commonly understood to have emerged from the horrors of WW1 with the goal of bringing about world peace, the authors argue that on the contrary, IR came from a somewhat less noble tradition - that of the Round Table.The Round Table were a network of imperialists emerging in the late 1800s across five key British imperial societies: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and India. Their aim was to improve imperial governance, placing the empire into a position to control world affairs. Although they ultimately failed to rearrange world order according to their vision, they did help to build what we now call the discipline of IR.The Round Table's 'scientific method' for the study of world affairs was rapidly subsumed into each geopolitical context. Through telling this story, the authors recover it, and interrogate its meanings for the discipline of IR today. They show the importance of the Global South to IR's foundations, and argue that IR scholarship in this period was intertwined with imperial racial thought in ways that it should not and cannot forget.

Description : Disciplining the Poor explains the transformation of poverty governance over the past forty years—why it happened, how it works today, and how it affects people. In the process, it clarifies the central role of race in this transformation and develops a more precise account of how race shapes poverty governance in the post–civil rights era. Connecting welfare reform to other policy developments, the authors analyze diverse forms of data to explicate the racialized origins, operations, and consequences of a new mode of poverty governance that is simultaneously neoliberal—grounded in market principles—and paternalist—focused on telling the poor what is best for them. The study traces the process of rolling out the new regime from the federal level, to the state and county level, down to the differences in ways frontline case workers take disciplinary actions in individual cases. The result is a compelling account of how a neoliberal paternalist regime of poverty governance is disciplining the poor today.

Description : This volume examines three interrelated aspects of the history of British India: race, the disciplining institution, and attempts by the colonized to imagine states of freedom. They deal with sites as diverse as the prison, the family, the classroom, the playing field and children's literature. The essays confront the ideological, social and political ramifications of the fact that even as metropolitan prisons and schools shifted their attention from the body to the confined 'soul', colonial disciplinary institutions ensured that race was firmly attached to the body and its habits. They also engage the historiography that has sought to underline the challenges of reconciling Michel Foucault and Edward Said. They ask whether the liberating possibilities of the racialized-and-embodied 'native' self were confined to inversions and rearrangements of given normative hierarchies, or if we can occasionally glimpse radical departures and alternative configurations of power.

Description : Nadine Ehlers examines the constructions of blackness and whiteness cultivated in the U.S. imaginary and asks, how do individuals become racial subjects? She analyzes anti-miscegenation law, statutory definitions of race, and the rhetoric surrounding the phenomenon of racial passing to provide critical accounts of racial categorization and norms, the policing of racial behavior, and the regulation of racial bodies as they are underpinned by demarcations of sexuality, gender, and class. Ehlers places the work of Michel Foucault, Judith Butler’s account of performativity, and theories of race into conversation to show how race is a form of discipline, that race is performative, and that all racial identity can be seen as performative racial passing. She tests these claims through an excavation of the 1925 "racial fraud" case of Rhinelander v. Rhinelander and concludes by considering the possibilities for racial agency, extending Foucault’s later work on ethics and "technologies of the self" to explore the potential for racial transformation.

Description : The agile community has figured out how to build and then continually improve very high-performance software development teams. This is akin to creating a race car engine and then evolving it to get more power, better fuel efficiency, and greater speed. Sadly in many cases we take these great engines, put them into an organizational tractor, and then complain that we're not winning the race. What we need to do is take our great race car engines (our development teams), put them into a race car (a DevOps ecosystem), have a great pit crew and driver (an effective IT organization), and then provide somewhere to race (an organization that can leverage IT to make money). That's what this book is all about - Moving from optimizing team performance to optimizing the entire enterprise. Business agility - being an adaptive, lean, responsive, and learning organization - is the race that enterprises need to win today. Yet there is no quick fix, no silver bullet, to attain business agility. This is a multi-year journey requiring hard work, experimentation, and most importantly a willingness to improve. The Disciplined Agile framework lowers risks and provides a path to accelerate your journey to business agility. The framework is unique in that it is the only one that puts all the pieces together into a cohesive enterprise roadmap for business agility transformation. This book begins with an overview of the challenges and opportunities that organizations face. We then describe seven principles that provide the underpinnings of the Disciplined Agile framework. Then the book works through Disciplined Agile Delivery (how to build a world-class engine), Disciplined DevOps (the race car), Disciplined Agile IT (the race car and its team), and what it means to be a Disciplined Agile Enterprise (the racing business). The book ends with a plan for starting with an Agile transformation and then evolving into a long-term continuous improvement strategy. Do you have the discipline it takes to win the race to business agility?

Description : The purpose of this policy brief is to describe the usage and trends of discipline for students with disabilities in Indiana to help inform local and state policymaking. The brief begins with a review of national and Indiana studies, followed by data that illustrate (1) how general and special education students compare with respect to suspension and expulsion; (2) the extent of use of the special disciplinary provisions under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA); (3) differences in suspension and expulsion rates for students in different disability categories; and (4) racial disparities in the use of IDEA disciplinary provisions. Information reported in this policy brief shows that: (1) Indiana's special education population is suspended out-of-school more often than the general education population, but they are less likely to be expelled; (2) Use of IDEA disciplinary provisions continues to be relatively infrequent, but may have increased slightly compared to four years ago; (3) Students identified with an emotional disability full-time are at a relatively high risk of being removed compared to other students with a disability; (4) Black students with a disability continue to be overrepresented in IDEA disciplinary provision use, and these disparities have increased compared to four years ago; (5) Racial disparity for Black students is most likely to be found in the IDEA disciplinary category other suspension/expulsion greater than 10 days; (6) Black students are relatively proportionally disciplined in the weapons/drugs and hearing officer determination categories; and (7) Some Indiana school corporations account for a highly disproportionate share of IDEA disciplinary use overall and for Black students in particular. (Contains 6 figures and 25 endnotes.) [This policy brief was produced by the Center for Evaluation and Education Policy, Indiana State University School of Education.].

Description : Educators remove over 3.45 million students from school annually for disciplinary reasons, despite strong evidence that school suspension policies are harmful to students. The research presented in this volume demonstrates that disciplinary policies and practices that schools control directly exacerbate today's profound inequities in educational opportunity and outcomes. Part I explores how suspensions flow along the lines of race, gender, and disability status. Part II examines potential remedies that show great promise, including a district-wide approach in Cleveland, Ohio, aimed at social and emotional learning strategies. Closing the School Discipline Gap is a call for action that focuses on an area in which public schools can and should make powerful improvements, in a relatively short period of time. Contributors include Robert Balfanz, Jamilia Blake, Dewey Cornell, Jeremy D. Finn, Thalia González, Anne Gregory, Daniel J. Losen, David M. Osher, Russell J. Skiba, Ivory A. Toldson “Closing the School Discipline Gap can make an enormous difference in reducing disciplinary exclusions across the country. This book not only exposes unsound practices and their disparate impact on the historically disadvantaged, but provides educators, policymakers, and community advocates with an array of remedies that are proven effective or hold great promise. Educators, communities, and students alike can benefit from the promising interventions and well-grounded recommendations.” —Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education, Stanford University “For over four decades school discipline policies and practices in too many places have pushed children out of school, especially children of color. Closing the School Discipline Gap shows that adults have the power—and responsibility—to change school climates to better meet the needs of children. This volume is a call to action for policymakers, educators, parents, and students.” —Marian Wright Edelman, president, Children’s Defense Fund

Description : This edited volume fills a critical void by providing the most current and authoritative information on what is known about disciplinary disparities. School exclusion—out-of-school suspension and expulsion in particular—remains a substantial component of discipline in our nation’s schools, and those consequences continue to fall disproportionally on certain groups of learners. The negative consequences of frequent and inequitable use of school exclusion are substantial, including higher rates of academic failure, dropout, and contact with the juvenile justice system. As educators, policymakers, community leaders, and other youth-serving organizations begin the difficult work of creating more equitable school disciplinary systems, the need for effective disparity-reducing alternatives could not be more important. Drawing on the multi-year ground-breaking work of the Discipline Disparities Collaborative, the chapters in this book provide cutting edge knowledge supporting a new national imperative to eliminate race, gender, disability, and sexual orientation-based disciplinary disparities.

Description : Previous research has suggested that increased use of school suspension and expulsion may be associated with increased risk of dropout and lower achievement. Part of the purpose of school discipline is to maintain school climates conducive to learning. This paper describes analyses exploring the relationship between school use of out of- school suspension and achievement outcomes in one Midwestern state. A combination of factors, including poverty, race, and school rate of out-of-school suspension are able to significantly predict school passing rates on Indiana State Test of Educational Progress (ISTEP). Thus, regardless of demographic factors, schools with a higher rate of out-of-school suspension have lower percentages of students who pass ISTEP. Moreover, by examining these factors simultaneously, it is clear that lower passing rates for African American students are not solely due to the effect of poverty, but that race makes a contribution of its own to average passing ISTEP scores. The increasing influence of race from elementary to secondary school analyses is similar to previous research in this area, and suggests an increasing contribution of schooling over time to the black-white test score gap. (Contains 3 endnotes, 1 figure, and 1 table.) [This document was produced by the Center for Evaluation & Education Policy.].

Description : International Relations, as a discipline, does not grant race and racism explanatory agency in its conventional analyses, despite such issues being integral to the birth of the discipline. Race and Racism in International Relations seeks to remedy this oversight by acting as a catalyst for remembering, exposing and critically re-articulating the central importance of race and racism in International Relations. Focusing especially on the theoretical and political legacy of W.E.B. Du Bois’s concept of the "colour line", the cutting edge contributions in this text provide an accessible entry point for both International Relations students and scholars into the literature and debates on race and racism by borrowing insights from disciplines such as history, anthropology and sociology where race and race theory figures more prominently; yet they also suggest that the field of IR is itself an intellectually and strategic field through which to further confront the global colour line. Drawing together a wide range of contributors, this much-needed text will be essential reading for students and scholars in a range of areas including Postcolonial studies, race/racism in world politics and international relations theory.

Description : The Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) collects a variety of information including student enrollment and educational programs and services, most of which is disaggregated by race/ethnicity, sex, limited English proficiency, and disability. The CRDC is a longstanding and important aspect of the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) overall strategy for administering and enforcing the civil rights statutes for which it is responsible. Information collected by the CRDC is also used by other Department of Education offices as well as policymakers and researchers outside of the Department of Education. This data snapshot highlights statistical information pertaining to the following aspects of school discipline, restraint, & seclusion. They include: (1) Suspension of preschool children, by race/ethnicity and gender; (2) Disproportionately high suspension/expulsion rates for students of color; (3) Disproportionate suspensions of girls of color; (4) Suspension of students with disabilities and English learners; (5) Suspension rates, by race, sex, and disability status combined; (6) Arrests and referrals to law enforcement, by race and disability status; and (7) Restraint and seclusion, by disability status and race. This snapshot reveals that students of certain racial or ethnic groups and students with disabilities are disciplined at far higher rates than their peers, beginning in preschool. The CRDC data also show that an increasing number of students are losing important instructional time due to exclusionary discipline.

Description : Critical social theorist and philosopher David Theo Goldberg is one of the defining figures in critical race theory. His work, unsurpassed in its analytical rigor and political urgency, has helped transform the way we think about race and racism across the humanities and social sciences, in critical, social and political theory and across geopolitical regions. In this timely collection of incisive and lively conversations with Susan Searls Giroux, Goldberg reflects upon his studies of race and racism, exploring the key elements in his thought and their contribution to current debates. Sites of Race is a comprehensive overview of Goldberg’s central ideas and concepts, including the idea of the Racial State, his emphasis on militarism as a culture, and his treatment of the "theology of race". Elegantly navigating between the theoretical and the concrete, he brings fresh insight to bear on significant recent events such as the War on Terror, Katrina, the killing of Trayvon Martin and Arizona's controversial immigration laws, in the process enriching and elaborating upon his vast body of work to date. Sites of Race offers fresh avenues into Goldberg's work for those already familiar with it, and provides an ideal entry point for students new to the field of critical race theory.

Description : School-Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (SWPBIS) is a school disciplinary framework seen as an effective tool to replace school disciplinary practices that contribute to the school to prison pipeline (STPP). While evidence suggests that SWPBIS can help improve school discipline and lower suspension/expulsion rates, it has not been shown to consistently decrease racial disciplinary disparities. This study thematically analyzed semi-structured interviews of educational staff at one high school at the outset of SWPBIS implementation to understand their perceptions of school discipline and the potential for SWPBIS to address root causes of racial disciplinary disproportionality. Using a critical race theory analytical lens to center issues of race and racism, the findings revealed a school that is deeply structured in Whiteness. Participants described the school as "two schools in one"--One that is largely White, affluent, and high-achieving and another that is predominantly Black, economically disadvantaged, and achieving at lower levels. Educators were open to key elements of SWPBIS, such as positive discipline and school-wide consistency in disciplinary practices. And while many participants identified systemic barriers to achieving equity, they simultaneously relied on discursive strategies that upheld Whiteness. These findings suggest that SWPBIS has the potential to be an alternative to punitive school discipline, but faces multiple barriers in addressing disciplinary disproportionality. The segregated and stratified school structure raises questions about whom SWPBIS is for and who will bear the burden of implementation.

Description : Michèle Lamont takes us into the world inhabited by working-class men--the world as they understand it. Interviewing black and white working-class men who, because they are not college graduates, have limited access to high-paying jobs and other social benefits, she constructs a revealing portrait of how they see themselves and the rest of society. Morality is at the center of these workers' worlds. They find their identity and self-worth in their ability to discipline themselves and conduct responsible but caring lives. These moral standards function as an alternative to economic definitions of success, offering them a way to maintain dignity in an out-of-reach American dreamland. But these standards also enable them to draw class boundaries toward the poor and, to a lesser extent, the upper half. Workers also draw rigid racial boundaries, with white workers placing emphasis on the "disciplined self" and blacks on the "caring self." Whites thereby often construe blacks as morally inferior because they are lazy, while blacks depict whites as domineering, uncaring, and overly disciplined. This book also opens up a wider perspective by examining American workers in comparison with French workers, who take the poor as "part of us" and are far less critical of blacks than they are of upper-middle-class people and immigrants. By singling out different "moral offenders" in the two societies, workers reveal contrasting definitions of "cultural membership" that help us understand and challenge the forms of inequality found in both societies.

Description : The Colorado legislature has recently taken school discipline policies under review, pursuant to SB 11-133. To inform the discussion in Colorado as well as a national discussion about discipline, this report presents an analysis of the most complete set of Colorado discipline data. It adds to and reinforces existing studies, documenting some troubling patterns, and suggests important changes in policy and in future data gathering. To accurately account for the fact that some students receive disciplinary actions more than once, this report describes and employs a measure that is called the "discipline assignment rate" in studying the proportion of students who receive discipline within certain population subgroups by gender and by race or ethnicity. Main findings from this analysis include: (1) Behavior categories that the authors identify as discretionary account for a combined 85.5% of yearly behavioral incidents, on average. These behaviors include disobedience, detrimental behaviors, and "other" violations; (2) Schools are, on average, more likely to assign out-of-school suspensions than any other disciplinary action. The next most common category is in-school suspensions; (3) Higher percentages of Black, American Indian, and Latino students receive disciplinary actions compared with White and Asian American students; (4) Disciplinary actions are assigned to Black students more than five times the rate of Asian American students and three times that of White students. The percentage of actions assigned to Black students is 36%, compared with a rate of 7% for Asian American students and 11% for White students; (5) Black students are assigned out-of-school suspensions at nearly four times the rate of White students, 21% compared with 5.5%. American Indian and Latino students are assigned out-of-school suspensions at over twice the rate of White students and over three times the rate of Asian American students; (6) Relative to students of color, when White students and Asian American students are subjected to discipline, schools tend to favor actions that do not push those students out of school; (7) The male discipline assignment rate is 21.7%, compared with a female rate of 8.2%; (8) Higher percentages of Black, American Indian, and Latino male students are assigned disciplinary actions compared with White and Asian American male students; (9) Higher percentages of Black, American Indian, and Latino female students are assigned disciplinary actions compared with White and Asian American female students; and (10) Past research has shown patterns in which certain racial groups are assigned discipline disproportionate to any race-identified differences in behaviors. The Colorado datasets do not allow for such analysis, however. Two key policy issues can be identified in this data. The first is whether racial disproportionality reflects a disproportionate number of students of color engaging in certain types of behaviors, or whether it reflects students of color being punished for behaviors that White students engage in without such serious consequences. The second issue involves out-of-school suspensions and the negative consequences, such as the higher dropout rates, correlated with this type of disciplinary action. The frequent use of out-of-school suspensions, and in particular the frequent use of this type of disciplinary action for students of color, needs to be remedied. Recommendations include: (1) Policy should be directed at decreasing the use out-of-school suspensions, which make up the majority of yearly actions and are linked to well-documented negative effects for students; policy also should be directed at decreasing the use of in-school suspensions; (2) Changes in discipline policy should take into account the overrepresentation of students of color in disciplinary actions; (3) Black, American Indian, and Latino youth are disproportionately affected by disciplinary practices. Colorado educators and lawmakers should immediately address the overrepresentation of students of color in disciplinary action, and changes in discipline policy must take into account racial disparity; (4) Policy should encourage increased examination of the effects of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Restorative Justice programs, such as mentioned in the recent report from the Legislative Task Force to Study School Discipline, as alternatives to traditional school discipline; (5) To enable improved analysis of disciplinary practices, policy should encourage the collection and reporting of school discipline data that include the student's behavior, the resulting disciplinary action, and the student's race and gender, all linked within the dataset; and (6) Further research on disciplinary practices should be supported, as many questions are still unanswered. Legislators and educators need to better understand what school characteristics are associated with higher overrepresentation as well as where in the disciplinary process overrepresentation is most apparent (e.g., in assigning actions or categorizing behaviors). Explanation of Colorado Discipline Data is appended. (Contains 13 tables, 1 footnotes and 22 notes and references.).

Description : In Because of Race, Mica Pollock tackles a long-standing and fraught debate over racial inequalities in America's schools. Which denials of opportunity experienced by students of color should be remedied? Pollock exposes raw, real-time arguments over what inequalities of opportunity based on race in our schools look like today--and what, if anything, various Americans should do about it. Pollock encountered these debates while working at the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights in 1999-2001. For more than two years, she listened to hundreds of parents, advocates, educators, and federal employees talk about the educational treatment of children and youth in specific schools and districts. People debated how children were spoken to, disciplined, and ignored in both segregated and desegregated districts, and how children were afforded or denied basic resources and opportunities to learn. Pollock discusses four rebuttals that greeted demands for everyday justice for students of color inside schools and districts. She explores how debates over daily opportunity provision exposed conflicting analyses of opportunity denial and harm worth remedying. Because of Race lays bare our habits of argument and offers concrete suggestions for arguing more successfully toward equal opportunity.
