The Ethics of Multicultural and Bilingual Education.
Bull, Barry L.; And Others

The following chapters are included: (1) "The Nature and Complexity of Issues in Multicultural and Bilingual Education"; (2) "The Liberal Perspective"; (3) "The Democratic Perspective"; (4) "The Communitarian Perspective"; (5) "Concluding Reflections on Political Morality in Multicultural and Bilingual Contexts"; (6) "Using and Analyzing Cases"; and (7) "Cases for Reflection and Discussion."
