My project explores the ways in which racial equity is addressed in a predominantly white school, through a study of Washfield High School in Seattle, WA. Through semi-structured interviews with three administrators, six teachers and two alumni, I examine themes including the prominence of blackness, segregation, curricular strategies, differential expectations across races, campus efforts and leadership. Through this study, I focus on the role that predominantly white schools have in increasing racial equity in education.
