This text takes a personal and practical approach towards multicultural education. Instead of starting with theory and adding classroom applications as secondary content, Multicultural Education starts with what a teacher needs to know in order to be an effective multicultural educator. A strong theoretical foundation about caring-centered multicultural education is interwoven throughout the text in a manner that makes it relevant to the reader. The text’s strong practical approach, along with its reader-friendly and jargon-free upbeat writing style, make it ideal for both undergraduate and graduate courses.
