Global Constructions of Multicultural Education : Theories and Realities
This study provides a comparative understanding of the global range of multicultural issues in education and the types of approaches being used to address them. The book presents different ways to think, talk and research about issues of diversity and the effect of power. This book tells us how various global regions are dealing with three major concerns within the field of multicultural education: *the conceptualization and realization of "difference" and "diversity"; *the inclusion and exclusion of social groups within a definition of multicultural education; All of the chapter authors pay attention to these themes, but, at the same time, they bring their particular interests and perspectives to the book, addressing issues, such as linguistic, racial, ethnic, and religious diversity; class; educational inequalities; teacher education; conceptualizations of citizenship; and questions of identity construction.
