Harry Potter and the Oppression of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse U.S. Students
The authors draw from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Rowling, 2003) to reflect on how the often unspoken insinuations as to who possesses cultural capital, and whose knowledge is valued in our schools, play an important role in what opportunities are provided. As educators, they use the fictional Hogwarts School of Magic to compare and confront the issues rooted in oppression that affect the lives of U.S. students, and reflect on how injustices affect children’s educational experiences.
