Praise for Everything I Learned About Racism I Learned in School

"Through honest and powerful vignettes, Jewell’s latest stitches together a collective memoir of formative experiences of educational racism and American schooling. Unapologetic and unflinching: a critical read."
  — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“[Jewell's] approach fuses the nonfiction vulnerability of memoir and the pointed, data-driven purpose of a treatise into a radical reimagining of the societal role schools play. A compelling read that persistently challenges commonly held perceptions of learning."
  — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)
“[The contributors’] shared message is the same: kids deserve better, and students need to know they can stand up for their rights. The content offers much to ponder.”
