Review quote

"This book presents a powerful reconceptualization of multicultural education by providing a curriculum proposal for culturally responsive teaching and guidelines for institutional support structures. This well-referenced and practical book is a major contribution to the field and a must-read for educators committed to a quality education for all students." -- Jacqueline Jordan Irvine, coauthor of Culturally Responsive Teaching: Lesson Planning for Elementary and Middle Grades "The authors have written an important book, firmly grounded in research on learning to teach and teaching, that outlines in great detail what is needed to accomplish the task of staffing our schools with culturally responsive teachers. It goes beyond the surface to discuss the specific elements of teacher education programs that are needed for our diverse public schools." -- Ken Zeichner, University of Wisconsin-Madison
