Diversity in Practice: Perspectives on Concept, Context, and Policy.
Hoffman, Diane M.
Educational Policy, v11 n3 p375-92 Sep 1997
Diversity is an idea that merits closer critical analysis. Many efforts to support diversity are framed by discourses grounded in conceptualizations of culture, difference, and identity that further the status quo, not multicultural understanding. Schools need a strategy of teaching and learning about differences that radically challenges people's assumptions about mainstream and minority cultural frameworks. (34 references) (MLH)
