Disrupting Assumptions about Race, Colorblindness, and Caring in Educational Reform and Qualitative Research: Introduction to a Special Issue

VIEWS: 13 PAGES: 11

In recent years I have begun to develop race consciousness and to understand my complicity with perpetuating White privilege. Because North Carolina was the context during our participation in studying the A+ Schools, in our 2004 AERA presentation we drew upon historian William Chafe's (1980) concepts of that state's "progressive mystique" and "code of civility" as a framework for analysis of our personal histories and how they influenced our researcher identities. According to Chafe (1980), the code of civility is the cornerstone of the progressive mystique, as Whites used civility as a "way of dealing with people and problems that made good manners more important than substantial action" (p. 8). [...] North Carolina progressives could view themselves as open to change as long as there was consensus and civility in the process of change.
