Encyclopedia of Multicultural Education

Synopsis

In the study of multicultural education, there are key names, places, concepts, and legal actions which provide a foundation for the field. This reference includes more than 400 entries from a broad range of topics related to multicultural education. While many of the entries are for terms and theories related to multicultural education, the volume also provides entries for notable persons from different cultures and relates them to the curriculum. In addition, the book includes entries for particular cultural groups, which examine their educational experiences and needs. Each entry not only helps to identify and place in an historical perspective a particular term, but also links that term to an important aspect of multicultural education. Entries provide bibliographic information, and the volume concludes with a selected, general bibliography.
