Feedback form is now closed.
This presentation uses Dis/ability Studies in Education (Gabel, 2005), contemporary deficit thinking (Valencia, 2010), and racial literacy (Stevenson, 2014) to critically analyze the educational and emotional experiences of previously incarcerated youth. The participants’ stories highlight the ways in which narratives of dis/ability (Baglieri & Knopf, 2008) are frequently used to criminalize children of color within schools and push them into the school-to-prison pipeline. This discussion will emphasize the importance of critiquing deficit-thinking in research and teaching through the use of racial literacy techniques, with the goal of finding practices that are truly supportive and inclusive for students of color with dis/abilities.
