How have power and agency been revealed in educational issues involving minorities? More specifically: how have politicians, policymakers, practitioners, and others in the mainstream used and misused their power in relation to those in the margins? How have those in the margins asserted their agency and negotiated their way within the larger society? What have been the relationships, not only between those more powerful and those less powerful, but also among those on the fringes of society? How have people sought to bridge the gap separating those in the margins and those in the mainstream? The essays in this book respond to these questions by delving into the educational past to reveal minority issues involving ethnicity, gender, class, disability, and sexual identity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In spite of historians' growing interest inthe educational experiences of marginalpopulations, virtually no book exclusively focuses on this theme. Thankfully, with the publication of this wonderful collection of essaysthis is no longer the case. This volume isa splendid contribution to thefield of educational history." - David Wallace Adams, Author ofEducation for Extinction: American Indians andthe Boarding School Experience, 1875-1828

"At a time when educators are struggling with questions about diversity and inclusion, this collection provides a wealth of fresh insights and new perspectives about the educational history of marginalized groups. The compelling case studies that make up this book challenge and complicate the conventional wisdom about these topics and undoubtedly will provoke lively debates." - Jeffrey Mirel, David L. Angus Collegiate Chair of Education, Professor of History, University of Michigan

"This is an important and timely book. Tamura and her contributors brilliantly provide new insight into the issues of marginality, agency and power. Utilizing a broad definition of education that includes institutions outside of schools, these essays provide us with a wider vision of discrimination that goes beyond race and includes people with disabilities as well as people of diverse sexual orientations. What a wonderful and well-researched book." - Linda M. Perkins, Associate University Professor and Director of Applied Women s Studies, Claremont Graduate University
