Building a "new social order": teachers, teacher unions, and equity in the Great Depression -- Muscular democracy: teachers and the War on Prejudice, 1940 -- 1950 -- Organizing the oppressed teacher: teachers' rights in the Cold War -- "An educator's commitment": professionalism and civil rights in the 1960s -- From teachers' rights to teacher power -- Conclusion: moving beyond rights?: teacher professionalism and civil rights in the era of No Child Left Behind.
Summary: Almost fifty years after Brown v. Board of Education, a wealth of research shows that minority students continue to receive an unequal education. At the heart of this inequality is a complex and often conflicted relationship between teachers and civil rights activists, examined fully for the first time in Jonna Perrillo & rsquo;s Uncivil Rights, which traces the tensions between the two groups in New York City from the Great Depression to the present.
