Summary

''Bridging Multiple Worlds combines foundational chapters with real-world cases involving staff, students, and families in various school settings to promote thought and discussion about all facets of diversity - race, immigration, class, gender, sexual orientation, language, religion, and exceptionality. Employing a decision-making scaffold, Taylor and Whittaker emphasize long-term, comprehensive solutions that promote school, home, and community cooperation and guide future teachers, counselors, service providers, and administrators toward an understanding of the complexity of school and community diversity issues.''--BOOK JACKET.
