Racism, Schooling, and Education Against Racism in the U.K. and the U.S.

  • Mike Cole
Part of the Marxism and Education book series (MAED)


In the first part of this chapter I make a distinction between schooling (a conforming process) on the one hand, and education (a liberating practice) on the other. To do this, I draw on the work of the two main neo-Marxists considered in this volume, Louis Althusser and Antonio Gramsci. Next, having examined key components of racism in the U.K. and the U.S. in chapters 2 and 3, I go on to examine in this chapter racism as it relates to schooling in these countries and the ways in which Marxist educators have challenged racism. I also address the constraints they have met historically and contemporaneously.
