Originally published in 1984. How to respond to ethnic diversity is a question of major importance for teachers. The multi-ethnic school is only one aspect of a multi-ethnic society, and the problems and complexities teachers face have far-reaching implications. Attention has turned from fitting minority ethnic groups into existing education systems to achieving equality in a multi-ethnic society, with consequent questions about and changes in the practice of teaching.

This book guides the reader through the complexities of changes in the field of race and education, examining developments in both policy and practice. It looks at the radical answers which were developing within a number of national education systems - in Britain, Australia, Canada, the US and elsewhere, and at the teachers’ practical responses to the pressing problems.
