This book brings together authors from education and psychology to link racial and ethnic identity to human development and school practices. Racial and ethnic identity issues are brought directly to schooling, so that teaching-learning experiences, psychological services, and counseling practices within the educational process can be made more effective for a greater number of students. Current research and best practices from psychology, educational leadership, counseling, teacher preparation, and classroom teaching are presented. The goal of this book is to help researchers, practitioners, and graduate students to interpret and contextualize relevant research and theory, and to bridge theory into practice.
