Abstract

In Educated in Whiteness, Angelina E. Castagno reveals the damaging effects of an education system that requires those within it to be 'nice' above all else. The central thesis of the text, that current approaches to diversity education in the United States are actually perpetuating the work of whiteness, is successfully developed and supported
throughout the book. Ethnographic research conducted by the author in two culturally and socio-economically different high schools within a Utah school district is analysed
according to critical race and whiteness theories of education.
