Summary

Use a sociopolitical context to explore the meaning, necessity, and benefits of multicultural education


Effective multicultural education must consider not just schooling, but also the larger social, economic, and political factors that affect students’ success or failure in the classroom. Affirming Diversity: The Sociopolitical Context of Multicultural Education helps readers understand these pervasive influences by presenting extensive research and data on the sociopolitical nature of schools and society, information about different sociocultural groups, and a conceptual framework for examining multicultural education. Real-life cases and teaching stories dominate in this book that offers a first-hand look into the lives of students and educators from a variety of backgrounds. Additionally, tips for classroom activities and community actions offer aspiring teachers concrete suggestions to provide high-quality, inclusive education in spite of obstacles they may face.


Throughout the 7th Edition, Nieto and Bode consider current policy, practice, and legislation issues while they outline a model of multicultural education that affirms diversity, encourages critical thinking, and leads to social justice and action.
