As the nation's ethnic texture continues to deepen, the challenge of educating students to function effectively in a pluralistic society intensifies. Over one-third of the students in the nation's public schools are students of color. These are the students who will make up nearly half of the nation's students by the end of the second decade of the new century. To respond effectively to the challenges and opportunities related to the increasing racial, ethnic, cultural, and social-class diversity within the US, teachers and administrators need to have a sophisticated grasp of the concepts, principles, theories, and practices in multicultural education. The book opens by describing the goals of multicultural education and misconceptions about it. Banks' five dimensions of multicultural education are also discussed early in the book, exposing readers to the framework that is used in school districts across the country and is widely reprinted in educational publications. It devotes an entire chapter to curriculum, clearly outlining the difference between curriculum transformation and curriculum integration of ethnic and cultural content.
