Reyes, G. T.; Zermeño, Bernadette Pilar – Multicultural Education, 2018
Schooling in the U.S. is ideological by design (Althusser, 1971; Apple, 1990; Duncan-Andrade & Morrell, 2008). It can justify and further the inequitable, hierarchical, and stratified economic, social, and cultural attitudes of a society (Aronowitz & Giroux, 1985; Ayers, 2004; Bowles & Gintis, 1976; Eubanks, Parish, & Smith, 1997).…

Reed, Judith – Multicultural Education, 2015
The phenomenon of migration as it is known today must be understood in the larger context of the globalized economy and the "race to the bottom" that characterizes the multinational corporate relationship with the global South.

Flores, Juan M.; Duran, Arturo – Multicultural Education, 2014
California's Proposition 227, or the Unz Initiative, had as its main focus the requirement that English learners be taught only in English, based on the belief that these children could learn English in one year.

Hossain, Kazi I. – Multicultural Education, 2014
America's history books abound with stories of immigrants who contributed to the development of this country. In terms of social studies curriculum, all states require schools to teach about immigration.

Mabry, Malerie; Bhavnagri, Navaz Peshotan – Multicultural Education, 2012

Hones, Donald; Cifuentes, Persida – Multicultural Education, 2012

Brown, Clara Lee – Multicultural Education, 2011
There is a clear and explicit expectation for immigrants in the United States to learn the English language as part of their schooling, and there is too often a tacit understanding that immigrants are to lose their heritage language (HL) at the same time. Most second-generation immigrant children remain monolingual in their HL until they enter…

Journell, Wayne; Castro, Erin L. – Multicultural Education, 2011
Latino students, in particular, often feel alienated from politics, especially at the federal level, and this political disengagement often correlates with the immigrant status of students or their families.
