1 Review
This book examines how teachers, administrators, and educational institutions contribute to racial and ethnic inequality and offers policy and practice suggestions for change. It reviews the literature, the national societal and cultural contexts, definitions of race and ethnicity, family influences, and then explores the topic in relation to teachers, classrooms, school programs, school organization, and district policy making. The book concludes with recommendations on how to integrate current school restructuring with multicultural education.

I read Chapter 6 of this book. First, it's badly written; I'd give it a "D" for college level work. Second, it's littered with post-modern ideas, which blames all failure to succeed in school as being due to the cultural hegemony.
If school reform depends on this sort of thinking, we are all lost.
