Racial Bias in the Classroom: Can Teachers Reach All Children?
Rowman & Littlefield Education
The accelerating demographic and economic changes within our society, the deepening racial divide, and the elusive quest for equality and justice make multicultural education and understanding the culturally diverse student imperative. The gap between the rich and poor has widened, visible signs of the racial crisis have become stark, and the rate of increase of low-income youth and youth of color within the nation's schools has continued to outpace the growth rate of the white population. The significant numbers of immigrants that settle in the United States each year are testimony to the vitality of the American dream. What can we do to promote academic success for all? This book will enable readers to learn how to handle situations involving culturally diverse students in their schools. In today's educational world, all need to achieve significant results at a much faster pace than at any other time in history. Parents, teachers, and students must come together to make a difference.
