viscerally to its presence in conscious and subconscious ways. More- over, avoidance of the presence of race is not really disengagement; it is actu- ally a form of engagement that is either subversive or subconscious, or both. Ignoring the omnipresence of race in our lives amounts to denial, evasion, and even self-delusion, and this is not surprising, because as a country, race has always been a touchy, even frightening subject. To say it is controversial is a gross understatement. The election of an African-American president of the United States, although history

East North Africa (MENA) countries (26 percent). A lower share reaches European countries (17 percent), while the rest go to the Americas (16 percent) or the pacific region of Asia (11 per- cent). Of the forcibly displaced people (65.6 million), some 17.2 million are refugees. From a global perspective, there has been an incremental trend in the total numbers of refugees and asylum seekers. In the last five years, there has been an increase of 73 percent (from 9.9 million people in 2012 to almost 17.2 million people by the end of 2016) in the share of refugees

experiences of the students themselves in connection with their acquisition of academic literacy practices in their research com- munity. By working with novice writers on the periphery of a discipline I believe it is possible to make visible the literacy practices and ways of being of a particular discipline and to gain important insights into the areas of difficulty which may be experienced by newcomers (Ivanic 1997). These experiences often become tacit for established members of a community of practice (Prior 1998). I worked with two men and two women, from

processes of teaching and learning, building relationships, and consciously creating classroom commu- nity. My work involves close collaboration with students and teachers in Chi- cago public schools, and I occasionally teach my own classes (Gutstein, 2006). In this chapter, I describe one of these efforts. During the 2008–2009 school year, I taught a 12th-grade mathematics class with 21 students at the Greater Lawndale/Little Village School for Social Justice (also known as Sojo). Sojo is 70% Latino (mainly Mexican), 30% Black (African American), and 98% low

images of bra-burning white women who are very male-like in their disposition, and who resent the process and practice of overt femininity. However, feminism, is very different for the woman of color, be she African American, West Indian, Caribbean (Puerto Rican) or some mix of all, by way of migration and/or lived expe- rience that she reflects on hermeneutically and at a distance. The intercon- nectedness of her social dynamics cannot be quantified by any practice of traditional “science.” For example, the Puerto Rican females in West Side Story have been

interviews with her and her tutor as evidence. Fannie and her tutor, Morgan, were both minority women: Fannie was Navajo and Morgan, African American. DiPardo explored Fannie’s difficulties with producing academic discourse and Morgan’s inability to reach and understand her. Morgan had attended some ses- sions on collaborative tutoring at the Conference on College Composition and Communication, and DiPardo saw that Morgan thoughtlessly pursued the tech- niques she had learned to the detriment of true communication with Fannie. DiPardo concluded that tutors needed more

educational achievement and reducing the “achieve- ment gap”—or the “wealth gap” as Kitty Kelly Epstein calls it (Epstein, in Pollick, 2008)—between White and Asian students on the one hand, and students from African American, Latino, and Indig- enous backgrounds and children from low-income backgrounds on the other, after six years, there is overwhelming evidence that the deeply flawed “No Child Left Behind” law (NCLB) is doing more harm than good in our nation’s public schools. NCLB’s test-and-punish approach to school reform relies on limited, one-size-fits-all tools
