Race, Ethnicity, and Education. Praeger Perspectives. [Four Volumes]
Ross, E. Wayne, Ed.; Pang, Valerie Ooka, Ed.
This book moves beyond traditional thinking and approaches to multicultural education to more accurately reflect the dramatically changing circumstances faced by North American schools in an age of globalization. The volumes address ways in which race and ethnicity affect learning across the life span, at all levels of formal education as well as in informal educational settings. Issues of school curriculum, instruction, and administration are examined. These volumes aim to address both the foundational assumptions and the practices of education in relation to changing conceptions of race and ethnicity. Volume one, "Principles and Practices of Multicultural Education" (edited by Valerie Ooka Pang), examines issues of equity, school reform, teacher education, and school leadership. Volume two, "Language and Literacy in Schools" (edited by Robert T. Jimenez and Valerie Ooka Pang), presents an overview of language and literacy learning for Latino and Asian American students, and gives general and specific recommendations for improved performance. Volume three, "Racial Identity in Education" (edited by H. Richard Milner), examines concepts of racial and ethnic identity and how they affect teaching and learning. The final volume, "Race and Anti-Racism in Education" (edited by E. Wayne Ross), looks at "color-blind racism"; "white supremacy" in the curriculum; race and testing; critical race pedagogy and anti-racist education; and globalization. (Contains 15 tables, 19 figures, and 4 photos.)
