Summary: In this revision of her best-selling text, author Sonia Nieto explores the meaning, necessity, and benefits of multicultural education for students of all backgrounds.

The text looks at how personal, social, political, cultural, and educational factors affect the success or failure of students in today's classroom. Expanding upon the popular case-study approach, the fourth edition examines the lives of 18 real students who are affected by multicultural edu ...show morecation, or a lack of it. Social justice is firmly embedded in this view of multicultural education, and teachers are encouraged to work for social change in their classrooms, schools, and communities.


Features :

These case studies capture readers' attention and make them truly care about the subject matter. Topics include racial, linguistic, religious, cultural, and sexual diversity.

  • An updated Epilogue provides an update on several of the students profiled.
