Description

Multicultural Education Policies in Canada and the United States uses a dialogical approach to examine responses to increasing cultural and racial diversity in both countries. It compares and contrasts foundational myths and highlights the sociopolitical contexts that affect the conditions of citizenship, access to education, and inclusion of diverse cultural knowledge and languages in educational systems. This will interest readers in the areas of multiculturalism, education, public policy, and ethnic studies, and will be valuable to policy developers and activists in the fields of equity and diversity. Essays of particular interest to First Nations are: First Nations Education Policy in Canada: Building Capacity for Change and Control by Jan Hare; and Policy Issues in the Education of American Indians and Alaska Natives by John W. Tippeconnic III and Sabrina Redwing Saunders.
