Class, Culture, and Race in American Schools: A Handbook

Synopsis

Class, culture, and race have influenced the educational experiences of children for centuries. As the demography of the United States shifts to create an even more diverse society, socioeconomic, racial, and ethnic issues gain growing importance to schooling in America. This reference work explores the critical importance of these issues to American schooling and employs historical, anthropological, sociological, and theoretical perspectives to provide an overview.
