While not exhaustive, the twelve major sections in this volume provide an understanding of the experiences and perspectives of different cultural communities. It is anticipated that this information will increase teacher awareness and understanding so that classrooms are more equitable and culturally sustaining. Through acquired knowledge about cultures, individuals may experience a paradigm shift from tolerance to appreciation of diversity. Such a positive change yields an educational experience that is culturally efficacious and inclusive.
This collection helps unpack and deconstruct ideas about this nation's cultural mosaic. At the same time, the readings attempt to clarify issues that are misconstrued, ignored, or disparaged. The anthology strives to broaden the understanding of cultural diversity beyond surface culture. More than a cornucopia of lyrics, dance steps, and celebration dates on a calendar, the selected articles from authoritative sources, explore issues of culture and social justice within the educational domains.
As in society, there are students from marginalized communities that are vilified in our schools and classrooms. Educators may witness, unwittingly support, or unintentionally engage in acts of symbolic violence. Such harmful behavior might include alienation, erasure, invalidation, as well as, microaggressions, micro-insults, micro-assaults, and other forms of bullying and bigotry. Through the use of these readings, educators will be encouraged to promote civil discourse and constructive dialogue. An additional result is the creation of safer and more equitable spaces for optimal learning opportunities for all students. This is educational equity, social justice, and joy for all.
