Abstract:

"This brief history of the education of dominated cultures in the United States provides needed background for understanding contemporary issues and problems in multicultural education. The dominated groups include Native Americans, Puerto Ricans, Mexican Americans, African Americans, and Asian Americans. Well written, original, and affordable, the book can be used in any course devoted wholly or partly to the current debate about multicultural education. Key features include a multicultural perspective that helps students understand the development of U.S. education from the perspective of other cultures; an historical context that helps students understand the reasons for the current concern about multicultural education, and a narrative writing style that requires students to think critically about educational institutions and multicultural education." "New in the Second Edition: A new Chapter 1 discusses the racial and cultural values brought to North America by English colonists and the early plans for the education of Native Americans; an expanded section on Asian Americans in Chapter 5 that discusses how the racial and cultural attitudes of the early English colonists help explain the denial of citizenship to Asian immigrants in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and the educational segregation of Asian American children; and a new section in Chapter 5 on the current debate about multicultural education."--BOOK JACKET.
