Affirming Diversity uses a sociopolitical context to explore the meaning, necessity and benefits of multicultural education. Effective multicultural education must consider not just schooling, but also the larger social, economic and political factors that affect students' success or failure in the classroom. Affirming Diversity helps you understand these pervasive influences by presenting extensive research and data on the sociopolitical nature of schools and society, information about different sociocultural groups and a conceptual framework for examining multicultural education. Real-life cases and teaching stories offer a first-hand look into the lives of students and educators from a variety of backgrounds.

The 7th Edition considers current policy, practice and legislation issues while outlining a model of multicultural education that affirms diversity, encourages critical thinking and leads to social justice and action.
