Description

In his new book, Michael Vavrus helps readers better understand why issues of diversity and difference are so highly contested in the United States and across the globe. Vavrus incorporates specific education examples throughout the text to examine six contested areas: race and ethnicity; socioeconomic class and culture; multicultural and ethnic studies; language; religion; and sexuality and gender. In each of these areas, the author explores how contrasting worldviews found in social conservatism, liberal multiculturalism, and critical multiculturalism influence our understandings about difference and diversity and the educational policies we develop as a result. Diversity and Education is designed to help educators move beyond the “how can they believe that?” knee-jerk reaction toward a more informed, strategic understanding of belief systems and political affiliations.

Book Features:

  • Brings a contemporary, 21st–century perspective to differing political orientations toward diversity and education.
  • Examines outcomes of diversity debates on children of color, the poor, immigrants, women, and sexual and religious minorities.
  • Uses critical pedagogy with a historical and political economy lens to explain current diversity issues in education.
  • Critiques the diversity stance of new national teacher education standards from the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation.
