To be honest, I was expecting this book to be a collection of politically correct truisms, with its head in the clouds and no basis in actual practicality. It does occasionally fall into that trap, suggesting virtually simultaneously, for instance, that we must not allow those with minority sexual preferences to be marginalized by their peers (a concept that I'm perfectly on-board with, by the way) AND insisting that we have to respect and acknowledge the validity of the religious beliefs of all students (even, presumably, those whose religions teach that homosexuality is an abomination.) Now, I'll admit that both of these things sound like excellent goals, but if you can tell me how to accomplish both simultaneously, you're doing better than this book did.

Still, the book was far less dominated by this sort of problem than I'd expected, and actually contained a lot of very thought-provoking, interesting information and ideas for discussion. What's more, it was actually one of the best-edited textbooks that I've seen, having only about five grammatical/typo type errors in it, which is far fewer than I've been forced to come to expect. ("That continues be..." rather than "continues to be..." in the preface on page xviii, "The Educational of All Handicapped Children Act..." rather than "The Education of..." on page 48, in the "1982" section of the table on issues of disability, "...how to adopt to those differences,..." rather than "adapt", on page 160, "Television, radio, film, and the Internet has spread..." rather than "have spread" on page 227, as well as the less clearly wrong, but somewhat awkward construction of "ameliorating the major problems we confront (e.g. global warming, preserving the environment, increasing poverty, and the loss of community) on page 333; personally, I don't consider preserving the environment to be a "problem" like the others listed; DESTRUCTION of the environment is a problem of that sort; preserving the environment is a challenge, not a "problem". Also, on page 427, "(Stevie) does face extra challenges due to his diagnosis of Down Syndrome." No, the challenges do not stem from the DIAGNOSIS. They stem from the Down syndrome. Being diagnosed has not added a single challenge to the boy's life; it has probably eased a few of them.

This book is full of information that is relevant in education system and practical in everyday teaching practices. in a world that is multicultural students that come to class are not any different. This book provides different approaches to multicultural teaching methods. Very beneficial and informative.

Bought this book for class, and we've barely used it... the parts I have read are insightful, but it it wasn't required, I wouldn't have purchased it

This was the textbook for my graduate level Multiculturalism class last semester. It had some decent ideas and information, but had a very clear and obvious political bias that I found very distracting. Additionally, the text often stated statistics on some hot button issues (ex. how many Americans are Christians) without ever listing the source for the numbers (the statistics seemed questionable already).

This is a terrifically balanced approach to the complexities of education in today's diverse classrooms and does a tremendous job accounting for religious and legal sensitivities.
