Overview

This book systematically examines how teachers, administrators, and educational institutions contribute to racial and ethnic inequality and offers suggestions for change. It examines societal and cultural contexts, definitions of race and ethnicity, and family influences. It then explores these topics in relation to teachers, classrooms, school programs, school organization, and district policy-making.

The authors present innovative research on family influence on school attainment, analyze four current efforts to alter schooling, detail an imaginative approach to using teachers as researchers, offer a critique of traditional school change, provide an ethnographic study of school 'detracting' and a rare examination of a district creating policy in multicultural education, and discuss the integration of two major reform efforts. The book concludes with recommendations on how to integrate current school restructuring with multicultural education.
