Experiencing Diversity: Toward Educational Equity. The Second Annual Yearbook of the Bank Street College of Education: Thought and Practice.
Pignatelli, Frank, Ed.; Pflaum, Susanna W., Ed.
Equity issues in education and the conditions out of which they emerge frame the chapters of this yearbook. These chapters analyze the arenas in which our society must seek greater equity, but they do not offer a blueprint, or any singular theory or body of knowledge. The chapters are: (1) "Community Education and Education for Community" (Colin Greer); (2) "A Different Perspective on Educational Inequality" (Stanley Aronowitz); (3) "Talking Back: The Portrait of a Student Documentary on School Inequity" (Steven Goodman); (4) "Beyond Difference: Toward Inclusion and Equity" (John Wolfe); (5) "Bilingual Education: A Double-Edged Sword in the Struggle for Equity" (Olga Romero); (6) "'I Will Have a Child in My Class with Two Moms, Two Lesbians. What Do You Know about This?'" (Elaine Wickens with Steven Schultz); (7) "Striving for Equity in Mathematics Education" (Barbara Dubitsky with Phyllis Eilenfeldt, Linda Metnetsky, and Michelle Morales); (8) "Breaking Labels and Breaking Promises: The Liberty Partnership at Bank Street College, 1893-1993" (David Penberg); (9) "Talking about Equity and Excellence" (Herbert Kohl); (10) "Shifting the Paradigm: You Must Have a Dream To Build a School" (Herb Rosenfeld); and (11) "'Did You Notice that They Didn't Eat?' Power and Culture in Ethnographic Evaluation Research" (Nancy Barnes). Chapters contain references. (SLD)
