It would behoove school districts and individual schools to listen to the attitudes of students regarding pedagogy.

Jones, Eric K. – Multicultural Education, 2018
The problem of police brutality in Black and Brown communities has become a very frustrating issue.

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).…

Drouin, Steven D. – Multicultural Education, 2018
Steven Drouin writes that in his first years of teaching, he viewed the purpose of school to be what his childhood teachers and college instructors had instilled in him.
