Culture and Power in the Classroom: A Critical Foundation for Bicultural Education
By expanding the dialogue with respect to bicultural education, Darder provides classroom teachers with a critical theoretical perspective by which they can evaluate their current practices with bicultural students. The book introduces the principles of a culturally democratic vision of schooling that both challenges the pluralistic notions of multicultural approaches, and also represents something of a political project, dedicated to securing the societal participation of communities and groups that historically have been excluded from the mainstream of American life. The work concludes with a practical study of bicultural education. This unique work will be an important resource for teachers, education students, and educational researchers, as well as a valuable addition to college and university libraries.
