Despite over thirty years of activism and legislation to eliminate discrimination, parity has yet to be achieved for women in academe. This book describes policy discourse analysis as a framework for considering how those involved in policy-making efforts may make use of discourses that inadvertently undermine the intended effect of the policies they set forth. Allan illustrates the methods of policy discourse analysis by describing their use in a study of twenty-one women's commission reports. In so doing, she highlights the important work of university women's commissions while uncovering policy silences and making visible the powerful discourses framing gender equity policy initiatives in higher education. Her findings reveals how dominant discourses of femininity, access, professionalism, race, and sexuality contribute to constructing women's status in complex and at times, contradictory ways. This important volume will interest researchers across a number of disciplines including policy studies, educational leadership, higher education and cultural studies of education.

This text explores the representation of race/ethnicity in a multiethnic school. Employing a critical case study approach, it appeals to the wider social context to explain the unequal struggle over the meaning of race and ethnicity in the school. In doing so it examines how stereotyping, curriculum, identity and language practices provide advantages for some and penalize others. The book also provides suggestions for how educators might find ways to introduce discourses that make it possible for traditionally marginalized students and members of the community to have their voices heard and to shape meanings that work in their interest.

This book examines the need for the development of an expanded theoretical foundation of counselor education which will serve to better prepare school counselors for effectively meeting student counseling needs in the 21st century. This process includes a rethinking of meanings and outcomes associated with counselor education, the counseling process, the role of the school counselor, and the political implications embedded in educational counseling. The expanded theoretical framework includes questioning the applicability and relevance-to-practice of current counselor education, a critical analysis of psychological philosophy, investigating the principles behind critical theory, feminist theory, and postmodernism, unveiling exclusionary aspects of current counseling theory and practice. Brotherton calls for a pedagogy of inclusion and fluidity in counselor education that will be capable of handling the issues surrounding diversity, multiplicity, and exclusion that are challenging American schools.
