Researcher language guide: A language guide to center racial equity in education research


This guide is intended to help researchers reflect on and rethink some of the current language used in our field that may perpetuate prejudices and impede progress toward dismantling inequities in education. It is not meant to be an exhaustive or prescriptive list of equity-based language recommendations. In general, we suggest ways to use more specific, person-centered language in order to move away from wording that applies external value judgements to demographic characteristics like race, home language and socioeconomic status.
