Overview

A core text for multicultural education courses,this book provides a broad treatment of the various forms of student diversity found in today's schools: gender,racial,ethnic,class,language,and handicapping condition. It also examines the various social and cultural changes that are sweeping across the world as countries convert from industrial economies to information based economies. Finally,it examines new ways of "doing school" in order to accommodate these human differences and socioeconomic changes. The revision is so extensive that we considered giving it a new title.
