Description - Beyond a Dream Deferred by Becky Thompson
"Beyond A Dream Deferred" is a multidisciplinary work that consolidates progressive perspectives on multicultural education, establishing it as a crucial sphere in a society charged with reimagining its national identity in all its increasing diversity. Fourteen essays offer moral and political visions of progressive education and institutional changes of the past 20 years. Drawing on the perspectives of faculty, administrators, and students - both activists and intellectuals - Thompson and Tyagi situate current controversies within larger issues of citizenship, the economy, demographic changes, and conflicts over the unequal distribution of power. The contributors, including Troy Duster, Evelyn Hu-Dehart, Earl Jackson Jr, Chandra Mohanty, and Cornel West, are recognized both as established spokespeople as well as new voices who work to promote progressive educational change. Adroitly gathering contemporary philosophical, theoretical and political examinations of multicultural education, "Beyond A Dream Deferred" offers a timely directive for scholars and students involved in change both within and outside the academy.
