How can multiculturalism go wrong? Through extensive interviews conducted in a large Midwestern school district, Antonia Randolph explores how teachers perceive students from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds and the unintended consequences of a kind of "colorblind multiculturalism." This provocative book challenges readers to look beyond the surface benefits of diversity and raises issues about American schools that need to be addressed.
Antonia Randolph is assistant professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware.
