Overview

Connecting multicultural education with political issues of power and struggle, this book explores what multicultural education means to white people, given the unequal racial power relations in the U.S. and worldwide. It examines connections between race, gender, and social class, particularly as these connections play out for white women. While taking a feminist perspective, the author is also wary of the power white middle class women exercise in defining what counts as gender issues. Throughout the book, Sleeter argues that multicultural education was born in political struggle and can never meaningfully be disconnected from politics. Ultimately the quest for schooling for social justice is a political quest rather than a technical issue.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Argues that multicultural education was born in political struggle and cannot be properly understood or practiced if it is severed from its roots, as many white educators are now doing to try to save programs from the scythe of conservatives. Explores what multicultural education means to white people, taking a feminist perspective while remembering that white women are privileged in defining gender issues. Annotation c.
