Description: The second edition of Culture and Power in the Classroomcould not have come at a better time. Enormously significant for many teachers and community activists since it was first published, the book has changed how they view – and how they do – education, as we can see from the personal essays by teachers, professors, and community activists at the conclusion of this new edition…..Unlike other texts that discuss educational failure as if it were context-free, the book provided a historical context for understanding underachievement in our nation. Thoroughly revised to include the new thinking on diversity and learning, the book now also includes a new chapter on assessment and the brain as well as thought-provoking and inspired reflections from teachers, parents, and community activists. This second edition has been a massive undertaking, one that will be welcomed by previous and new readers alike.
