Editorial Reviews

Review

"The preparation of a highly qualified teacher workforce has become a national priority. In an unusual turn, the discussion of 'quality' has centered solely on forms of knowledge and the ability to show the acquisition and demonstration of content and competencies. The place and importance of dispositions and clinical skill in teacher practice are largely absent from the national discourse. White Teachers/Diverse Classrooms is an intellectually rich conversation starter. This book explores the myriad considerations needed to create schools that serve all learners. Chief among the requirements is highly qualified teachers - those who are committed to advancing the intellectual development of all learners because each one has the potential to do great things." - Sharon P. Robinson, President and CEO, American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education "When people read the title of this book, their initial reaction might be that this is another 'blame game.' However, this book is about one of the most persistent and well documented fault lines in our schools: the educational achievement gap between minority and non-minority students and the critical role of all teachers, particularly white teachers, in eliminating it. White Teachers / Diverse Classrooms is both a practical road map and an appeal to all teachers to re-dedicate themselves to ensuring that all students are prepared and can meet high educational standards - not simply for their sake, but for the future of America and all of her citizens." - Mary H. Futrell, Dean of the Graduate School of Education & Human Development, The George Washington University and former president of the National Education Association"
