Multicultural Education in the United States: Reflections
Kahn, Michele
Intercultural Education, v19 n6 p527-536 Dec 2008

However, definitions and theoretical perspectives of multicultural education remain convoluted. No Child Left Behind (NCLB), the legislation in place purported to equalize achievement, and the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), an accreditation agency which sets standards by which teacher education programs prepare future teachers, have elements which maintain and/or fail to change schooling conditions which leave children in the status quo.
