The struggle over Crenshaw’s future became a symbol of the broader fight between ‘education reform’ and educational justice underway around the country, where in urban districts across the country, such as Chicago, Philadelphia, and Detroit, school closures have been morphed into a national politically charged campaign (Sanchez, NPR). It has been a wave consistent in the Obama administration, where the education agenda has been to shut down failing schools and promote the expansion of publicly funded, privately run charter schools (Sanchez, NPR).

In the face of a hostile policy environment and a narrative in the national media that is broadly supportive of a narrow vision of education reform, embodied by school choice, standards-based curricula, high-stakes testing, attacks on teachers’ unions, and top-down management, Crenshaw gives much-needed exposure to reform’s negative consequences on marginalized communities of color.
