This volume concentrates on the practical applications of diversity and multicultural education, their philosophical and social policy motivations and the historical development of various versions of the approach in North America. It explores competing visions of multicultural education and details the political and educational arguments for and against them. It examines the historical legacies that set the stage for diversity and multiculturalism: deculturalization, segregation and integration. It analyses three major approaches to curriculum development and makes trend-setting theory accessible to contemporary practice. It also provides case studies of multicultural education, with observations of and insights into specific schools, their students, teachers, educational views, accountability systems and facilities.
