Hain-Jamall, Doe A. S. – Multicultural Education, 2013

Lee, Vera J. – Multicultural Education, 2012
When the author began the present study, she was discouraged to learn that little research exists that captures the professional experiences of teachers of color, particularly in suburban schools.

Cardenuto, Nancy E. – Multicultural Education, 2012
In Malawi, education is not always a top priority. Although there has been free primary education since 1994, attendance in school is not compulsory (Ngozo, 2010).
