Dedicated to a better understanding of the diversity of children being taught in American public schools, this book includes the experiences of groups (e.g. Haitians, Dominicans, Indians, and Vietnamese) not often represented even in the multicultural education literature. It also includes the experiences of often marginalized groups such as lesbians and gays, Appalachians, and white working class males.

Book News
Thirteen contributions probe the experiences of "familiar minorities," such as African Americans, Native Americans, and Mexican Americans, as well as "newcomers" such as Haitians, Dominicans, Indians, Salvadorians, and Vietnamese. In the final section, "other minorities" are discussed groups struggling for recognition such as lesbians and gays, Appalachians, and white working class males. The aim is to highlight the presence of diverse groups in the schools, and also to introduce some of the research dealing with this diversity. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
