The early praise for our latest book says it all: Rethinking Multicultural Education: Teaching for Racial and Cultural Justice, edited by Rethinking Schools editor Wayne Au, is “thoughtful and timely” and an “essential text.”

Rethinking Multicultural Education is a collection of the best articles from Rethinking Schools on race and culture over the last 23 years, with topics ranging from how we teach Christopher Columbus to the need to recognize the value of home languages in the classroom to the myth of Model Minority.

Among the writers featured in this seminal work include contributions by the late Asa G. Hilliard III, Lisa Delpit, Geneva Smitherman, Enid Lee, Christine Sleeter, Linda Christensen, Bill Bigelow, Bob Peterson, Stan Karp, Stephen Krashen, Harold Berlak, and Carol Tateishi.

Gloria Ladson-Billings, Kellner Family Chair in Urban Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison and author of Dreamkeepers: Successful Teachers of African American Children writes that Rethinking Multicultural Education is “both thoughtful and timely” and “the resource teachers at every level have been looking for.”

Jeff Chang, author Can’t Stop Won’t Stop says: “Rethinking Multicultural Education powerfully reminds us that any attempt at ‘multicultural education’ that fails to raise critical questions among students, teachers, and administrators about racial justice is inadequate to the needs of this time.”
