The accelerating demographic and economic changes within our society, the deepening racial divide, and the elusive quest for equality and justice make multicultural education and understanding the culturally diverse student imperative in the 21st century. The gap between the rich and poor has widened, and visible signs of the racial crisis have become stark. Racial Bias in the Classroom: Can Teachers Reach All Children? includes a history of multicultural America and features discussions on the issues and perspectives of multicultural curriculum, language diversity, and proven teaching strategies invaluable for all teachers, parents, and students.

With each generation, we seek anew to adapt to the changing face of American education. Darlene Leiding burrows into the core of a problem and shows us the kernels of success. Her observations are crisp, insightful and highly relevant. They ring with the truth that comes from living her craft.--Scott M. Taylor, Ed.D., professor, Small Business Management, South Central College, New Ulm, MN
