Overview

Future educators must be aware of educational experiences that will challenge deeply rooted assumptions about communities different from their own and achieve an understanding of the realities of other peoples' lives. Since many educators misinterpret the social, racial, and political problems they see, and as a result, blame the minority and poverty-stricken students for not effectively adjusting to the norms and expectations of the educational system, the authors of THE COLOR OF BUREAUCRACY takes an inquiry, practice-driven approach to understanding multicultural issues. The text immerses the reader in social, cultural, and political problems through case studies told from multiple perspectives and presents strategies for effective intervention unlike any other multicultural textbook. Captivating case studies provide a vehicle for actively engaging students in interpreting, understanding, and responding to complex problems of practice. Opportunities for self-reflection and self-discovery are presented throughout and help future teachers see how they view their own roles and responsibilities and guides the development of their professional identities conducive to understanding multiple communities within the school.

Booknews
Shows how the inequities of the past are unconsciously maintained through inherited systems of bureaucratic control in public schools. Combines theories of multiculturalism with organization and political theory to break the silence on racial, class, and ethnic issues in organization studies and in education. Overviews the nation's treatment of minority populations, then presents a case of racial conflict that erupted at one school. Examines the politics of universalism and how it sustains inequality, and looks at processes for establishing more open systems of inquiry. Larson is affiliated with New York University.
