Description

This edited collection introduces readers to the main concepts that comprise the spectrum of diversity and multicultural education in Canada, with a particular focus on social justice and on what human flourishing might mean in these contexts. Diversity and Equity in Canadian Schools blends theory and practice with each section containing one theoretical and one practical chapter devoted to each area of diversity, including socio-economic status, gender and sexual orientation, language, religion, geography, disability, ethnicity and race, and Indigenous education, with a continuous focus on intersectionality.

The first chapter in each section is conceptual, providing thoughtful narrative of the historical and current concerns of the given area of diversity. The second chapter then provides practical considerations for educators in the K–12 classroom, building teacher capacity both to work against the structures, policies, curriculum, and pedagogies that limit marginalized students’ flourishing and to build the capabilities for flourishing in all students. Readers are provided with practical guidelines to help them approach each chapter with openness, humility, and critical engagement.

Diversity and Equity in Canadian Schools is well-suited for Canadian university courses in Education that focus on critical multicultural education and equity, diversity, and inclusion in the classroom.
