In this revision of her best-selling book, author Sonia Nieto explores the meaning, necessity, and benefits of multicultural education for students of all backgrounds. nbsp; The book looks at how personal, social, political, cultural, and educational factors affect the success or failure of students in todays classroom. Expanding upon the popular case-study approach, the fifth edition examines the lives of 19 real students who are affected by multicultural education, or a lack of it. Social justice is firmly embedded in this view of multicultural education, and teachers are encouraged to work for social change in their classrooms, schools, and communities. Inservice and preservice teachers, principals, school administrators and anyone interested in multicultural education.
