Summary: "This book examines the struggle against racial and cultural inequity in educational systems, presenting the case study of a New Zealand school and its community's determination to resist alienating environments. If we look at an untouched child's coloring book, for instance, we think of the pages as blank. But they're not actually blank - each page is uniformly white, with lines established to dictate where color is allowed to go. Children by this are taught about the place of color and the importance of staying within pre-determined boundaries and expectations, reinforcing a system where the white background is considered the norm."--Publisher's website.
