Join us in celebrating the 25th anniversary of James A. Banks’ Multicultural Education Series published by Teachers College Press—a dynamic series consisting of more than 70 published books with many more in the pipeline. This commemorative volume features engaging, incisive, and timely selections from the bestselling and most influential books in the series. Together, these selections address how multicultural education should be transformed for a nation and world that are becoming increasingly complex due to virulent racism, pernicious nationalism, mass migrations, interracial mixing, social-class stratification, and a global pandemic. The volume is divided into five parts: (1) History and Foundations of Intergroup and Multicultural Education; (2) Structural and Institutional Racism in Schools; (3) Culture, Teaching, and Learning; (4) Curriculum Reform: History, Ethnic Studies, and English Language Learners; and (5) School Reform. All chapters are authored by eminent education scholars, including Tyrone C. Howard, Sonia Nieto, Carol D. Lee, Guadalupe Valdés, Christine E. Sleeter, Linda Darling-Hammond, Pedro A. Noguera, and James W. Loewen.
James A. Banks is the Kerry and Linda Killinger Endowed Chair in Diversity Studies Emeritus, University of Washington.
“Building more just schools within a stronger democracy are urgent endeavors that require attention to the pedagogical, policy, and research platform whose myriad dimensions are described throughout these chapters and in every book of the Multicultural Education Series. . . . One can only hope that a new generation of leaders (and followers) will carry on the visionary project of transformational change outlined in these books.”
