Sonia Nieto makes student learning the primary objective of multicultural education. Nieto draws on a host of research in learning styles, multiple intelligences, and cognitive theories to portray the way students learn. She then takes us beyond individual learners to discuss the social context of learning, educational equity, the influence of culture on learning, and critical pedagogy. Centering on multicultural education as a transformative process, the text includes many reflections of teachers who have undergone this process and whose experiences will be invaluable to other teachers.
