Sarraj, Huda; Bene, Konabe; Li, Jiaqi; Burley, Hansel – Multicultural Education, 2015
For decades scholars have agreed that the United States is becoming a more racially and ethnically diverse society.

Milner, H. Richard, IV – Multicultural Education, 2014

Ms. Shaw, the social studies teacher discussed in this article, is…
