Abstract

Interventions to address the racial/ethnic “academic achievement gap” in the United States have not been successful. We argue this lack of success is, at least in part, related to a lack of recognition that racism is the root cause of racial disparities in education. In this chapter, we summarize the strengths and pitfalls of fostering academic resilience through three approaches: resilience, social-emotional and character development, and trauma-informed practices. We suggest that building on strengths of each of these approaches with a critical racial equity lens is necessary to foster academic resilience.
