There is a need to rethink education studies in these times of change, in terms of literacies and technologies, conflict and environmental concerns, and a need for authoritative texts addressing the key areas within education; sociology, child and infant development, social justice, policy, social welfare and development - and multiculturalism. This popular text provides approaches to the theoretical perspectives and frameworks and focuses on the relevant literature surrounding multiculturalism for today's students.
This new edition includes a completely new contemporary chapter on the notion of multicultural citizenship and new integrationist policies in England, including the latest research on citizenship, immigration and integration as applied to worldwide education policy-making.
Including extensive examples of empirical research, study questions, updated references and website resources, Multiculturalism and Education 2e is essential reading for all those studying multiculturalism, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, within education and the wider social sciences today.
