Summary
"The reform of education has been an ongoing process, but never has reform itself received such intense scrutiny as it is getting today. Editors Pignatelii and Pflaum tell us that we may not call the process "reform" if it is not all-inclusive in bringing education to those who differ from the mainstream. Until educators can truthfully say they have addressed the needs of the poor child, the poor family, the poor community, they are not reformers. Real reform must reach those whose native tongue is not English, those whose culture is not "American."" "Experiencing Diversity provides a forum in which world-class educators make a strong case for outcome-based education. The contributors discuss why it is important to consider equity as an important move to attend to the outcomes of schooling. They delve into the real effects of reform on students' lives. Most important, the authors examine ways to achieve the goals of true educational equity and, through inquiry and exploration, offer several paths for thought and action." "The publication of Experiencing Diversity could not come at a better time. American education is once again receiving the attention it deserves, and the country's affirmation of "equality" is - as usual - the cornerstone of the many debates. Unfortunately the goal of equality is too often at odds with reality; especially the reality of an education system poorly suited to our highly diverse student body." "Learning to embrace diversity in a caring, realistic way is both profoundly important and absolutely essential to the achievement of education's ultimate goal, the empowerment of all its citizens."--Jacket
