Summary

The second edition of Culture and Power in the Classroomcould not have come at a better time. Enormously significant for many teachers and community activists since it was first published, the book has changed how they view and how they do education, as we can see from the personal essays by teachers, professors, and community activists at the conclusion of this new edition…..Unlike other texts that discuss educational failure as if it were context-free, the book provided a historical context for understanding underachievement in our nation. Thoroughly revised to include the new thinking on diversity and learning, the book now also includes a new chapter on assessment and the brain as well as thought-provoking and inspired reflections from teachers, parents, and community activists. This second edition has been a massive undertaking, one that will be welcomed by previous and new readers alike.
