There is a wide and growing ethnic, cultural, social-class, and linguistic gap between many of the nations teachers and their students. Multicultural Education: Issues and Perspectives, 9th edition, is designed to help current and future educators acquire the concepts, paradigms, and explanations needed to become effective practitioners in culturally, racially, linguistically, and social-class diverse classrooms and schools. An important goal of the 9th edition is to help educators attain a sophisticated understanding of the concept of culture and to view race, class, gender, social class, and exceptionality as interacting concepts rather than as separate and distinct.
