    Editorial Reviews

    "Written in a lively and accessible way, this book allows students to become active, thoughtful participants in meaningful dialogues about multicultural education and their future role as teachers in a diverse and democratic society." --Nadine Dolby, Associate Professor of Curriculum Studies and Cultural Foundations of Education, Purdue University Praise for the previous edition: "Grant and Sleeter have written a textbook where students actively engage in (rather than just read about) becoming multicultural educators. I know of no other text that helps faculty scaffold students towards thoughtful engagement with such complex and critical issues."--Dan W. Butin, founding Dean of the School of Education, Merrimack College
