Regardless of what path public policy leaders choose to tackle the growing issue, scholars Bertrand, Perez, and Rogers said it best: “it is important that efforts be taken in both political and academic arenas to galvanize the discourses and discursive strategies that promote equity and expose those that re-entrench racism and classism in education”…
