The Foundations of Educational Curriculum and Diversity: 1565 to the Present describes school models throughout history that educators hoped would solve social problems associated with multiculturalism in the schools. Multiculturalism is still a current issue, and prospective teachers, administrators, and counselors should be aware of the problems and benefits resulting from each solution. This text does not promote one single model of school organization; rather, it encourages educators to exercise independent thought and understanding. --Publisher description.
