Educators’ Discourses on Student Diversity in Canada
Context, Policy, and Practice
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in equity in education. It reminds us about our duty to care for the welfare of our students. Schools truly have the ability to become “sites of possibility” and it is up to us as educators to make that happen.

[This] book provides a useful contemporary snapshot of how educators think and talk about diversity in Canada. It moves beyond superficial and taken-for-granted views of the meaning of diversity to look critically at the significance of educators’ descriptions of the diverse educational context in which they work, and what they do in these settings. I don’t know of any other books that provide this broad an overview of the country in the area of education and diversity.
