    schema:reviewBody ""Turner-Vorbeck and Miller Marsh contend that the vast diversity found in schools and society today suggests an urgent need to reconsider the ways in which families are currently represented and addressed in school curriculum and culture. In this important volume, they provide critical and theoretical analyses combined with narrative experiences to address such issues as multi-generational views of the schooling experiences of immigrant families, the educational needs of gay and lesbian families, the representation of adoption and adoptive families in children's literature, and the experiences of homeless students and their families with the educational system. Essential reading for everyone interested in building more inclusive communities, this book: looks at families that diverge from the so-called norm, including single parent, multi-racial, foster, adoptive, blended, LGBTQ, and immigrant families; features a varied group of authors, including teachers, students, parents, principals, school counselors, and professors; offers examples of how both school and university personnel have responded to incorporating all family types into the school community; provides guidance to help readers affect positive and appropriate change in their own classrooms and communities; and includes questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter."--BOOK JACKET." ;
