Human Diversity in Education: An Integrative Approach
This book attempts an integrated treatment of the various forms of human diversity found in schools: gender, racial, ethnic, class, language and handicap. It stresses the culture-learning (socialization) process: how individuals become functioning group members and how their cultural conditioning produces barriers to understanding and interacting with those who are different from themselves. The book is aimed at courses dealing with human diversity in education and broadened multicultural language, and social class differences. It may also appeal to many foundations instructors with an interest in diversity and inequality.
