Race, Ethnicity, and Education moves beyond traditional thinking and approaches to multicultural education to more accurately reflect the dramatically changing circumstances faced by North American schools in an age of globalization. The volumes address ways in which race and ethnicity affect learning across the life span, at all levels of formal education as well as in informal educational settings. Issues of school curriculum, instruction, and administration are examined. These volumes aim to address both the foundational assumptions and the practices of education in relation to changing conceptions of race and ethnicity.

Volume One, Principles and Practices of Multicultural Education, examines issues of equity, school reform, teacher education, and school leadership. Volume 2, Language and Literacy in Schools, presents an overview of language and literacy learning for Latino and Asian American students, and gives general and specific recommendations for improved performance. The third volume, Racial Identity in Education, examines concepts of racial and ethnic identity and how they affect teaching and learning. The final volume, Racism and Antiracism in Education, looks at color-blind racism; white supremacy in the curriculum; race and testing; critical race pedagogy and anti-racist education; and globalization. Outstanding scholars contributing to this timely collection include: Eduardo Bonilla-Silva; George J. Sefa Dei; Donna Y. Ford; Vivian Gadsden; Carl A. Grant; Edmund W. Gordon; Joyce E. King; and Kevin K. Kumashiro.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The editors' intent is to encourage a transformational environment within which the discourse related to race and ethnicity shifts sufficiently to improve the educational experiences for each student within our increasingly diverse population. Although the goal is lofty, the thoughtful reader is given enough carefully selected depth and breadth within this collection to grasp its significance, which is sufficient to recommend it highly for academic libraries at all levels."


Library Journal

"Ross and Pang draw on their specialties to gather a collection of essays on issues and teaching methods applicable to the multicultural classroom. The four volumes are thematic, containing in turn articles on principles and practice, racism and antiracism, language and literacy, and racial identity, as each relates to education or teaching. Many of the articles incorporate case studies, grapple with current issues the reader will recognize, and often contain methods and approaches for the reader to apply in their own classroom."


Reference & Research Book News

"REE is absolutely essential for college-level education collections. It will also be informative for communities that are grappling with social issues in education. As soon as my copy was cataloged, several professors and numerous students visited the reference department to thumb through it. I bet your copy would be heavily used too."
