This research-based, comprehensive introduction to multicultural education and diversity prepares future teachers for the wide diversity of students they will meet in their classrooms, schools, and communities. Moving beyond the purely cultural approach of many comparable texts, Human Diversity in Education addresses the full range of human diversity found in today’s schools – including nationality, ethnicity, race, religion, gender, class, language, sexual orientation, and ability levels.

Based on the assumption that change begins with the individual teacher, the text argues that prospective teachers must learn to incorporate issues of diversity in all of their work – including in their interactions with children, parents, colleagues, and the community.
