Multicultural Education in the U.S.: A Guide to Policies and Programs in the 50 States

Synopsis

Born during the turbulent years of the 1960s, multicultural education has attempted to help students acquire a more sophisticated understanding of the pluralistic populations of the United States. This reference book is a convenient guide to multicultural education initiatives in the 50 states. The volume contains alphabetical entries for each state. Because multicultural education is largely a response to the ethnic composition of a particular state, each entry begins with a brief history of the state, which gives special attention to the experiences of various racial and ethnic groups. The second part of each entry summarizes the educational system of the state, while the third analyzes the state's multicultural education efforts. Each entry closes with bibliographic information, and the volume concludes with a selected, general bibliography.
