Summary

This text explores the representation of race/ethnicity in a multiethnic school. Employing a critical case study approach, it appeals to the wider social context to explain the unequal struggle over the meaning of race and ethnicity in the school. In doing so it examines how stereotyping, curriculum, identity and language practices provide advantages for some and penalize others. The book also provides suggestions for how educators might find ways to introduce discourses that make it possible for traditionally marginalized students and members of the community to have their voices heard and to shape meanings that work in their interest.
