Deculturalization and the Struggle for Equality: A Brief History of the Education of Dominated Cultures in the United States

The dominated groups include Native Americans, Puerto Ricans, Mexican Americans, African Americans, and Asian Americans. Well written, original, and affordable, the book can be used in any course devoted wholly or partly to the current debate about multicultural education. Key features include a multicultural perspective that helps students understand the development of U.S. education from the perspective of other cultures; an historical context that helps students understand the reasons for the current concern about multicultural education, and a narrative writing style that requires students to think critically about educational institutions and multicultural education.
