Culture and Power in the Classroom: A Critical Foundation for Bicultural Education
In this work, Darder examines the impact of dominant cultural forces on the lives of students from disenfranchised communities, and confronts the cultural values and practices that serve to marginalize Black, Latino, Asian, and other bicultural students. She offers a set of theoretical principles from which to develop a critical practice of bicultural education, and provides classroom teachers with a critical perspective by which they can evaluate their current practices with bicultural students. The book concludes with a practical study of bicultural development at one college.
