In this chapter, the authors critically review K–12 science education research situated within classrooms in the USA. The authors examine studies involving Blacks that were conducted over the past decade from 1997, the year in which equity became a featured topic in mainstream science education discourse, to 2007. The authors highlight areas investigated in science education and discuss relevance of the literature corpus to the status of Blacks in science education.
