Rodríguez-Valls, Fernando; Torres, Celina – Multicultural Education, 2014
Migrant families are mobile by nature. They are constantly searching--for the next harvest, for a new job opportunity. It too often appears that this transient population drifts in and out of schools without one being appreciably affected by the other. This is a lost opportunity, both for the migratory students and for the communities and schools…

Purcell-Gates, Victoria; Lenters, Kimberly; McTavish, Marianne; Anderson, Jim – Multicultural Education, 2014
Rogoff (2003) argues that "Human development is a cultural process….People develop as participants in cultural communities" (p. 3). Children develop within families, and different cultures reflect differences in how they structure activity for this development. For example, middle class North American families generally would not permit…

Georgis, Rebecca; Gokiert, Rebecca J.; Ford, Donna Mae; Ali, Mulki – Multicultural Education, 2014
Parental engagement in education has proven to be important to children's academic success.

Milner, H. Richard, IV – Multicultural Education, 2014
In an era of student testing by any means necessary, it has become increasingly rare to locate teachers who are committed to teaching students to improve society because they are instead under immense pressure to raise test scores (Darling-Hammond, 2010; Ladson-Billings, 2006). Ms. Shaw, the social studies teacher discussed in this article, is…

Green-Gibson, Andrea; Collett, April – Multicultural Education, 2014
The public educational system is comprised of diverse demographics wherein each student has a distinct cultural personal history (O'Brien, 1998). In America, the traditional perception was that a melting pot society existed. But deMarrais and LeCompte (1999) maintain that a stew pot or salad bowl would be a more appropriate analogy. Melting pot…
