GLOBAL MIGRATION, DIVERSITY, AND CIVIC EDUCATION- Improving Policy and Practice

James A. Banks, Marcelo M. Suarez-Orozco, and Miriam Ben-Peretz,
Editors

Sponsored by the National Academy of Education.

Mass migration and globalization are creating new and deep challenges to education systems the world over. In this volume, some of the world’s leading researchers in multicultural education and immigration discuss critical issues related to cultural sustainability, structural inclusion, and social cohesion. The authors consider how global migration is forcing nation-states to reexamine and reinvent the ways in which they socialize and educate diverse groups for citizenship and civic engagement. These chapters also address how schools can help migrant and immigrant groups attain the knowledge, values, and skills required to become fully participating citizens, while retaining important aspects of their home, community, languages, and culture. Case studies from the United States and Israel are used to illustrate how these concepts are manifested in two immigrant nations.

James A. Banks is the Kerry and Linda Killinger Endowed Chair in Diversity Studies and founding director of the Center for Multicultural Education at the University of Washington, Seattle. Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco is the Wasserman Dean, UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies. Miriam Ben-Peretz is professor emerita at the faculty of education at the University of Haifa, Israel.

“The authors have masterfully assembled an invaluable guide to understanding the multiple complexities and challenges involved in designing a transformative multicultural civic education.”

“This impressive volume offers valuable insights to teachers, teacher educators, and researchers concerned with preparing youth to be participating democratic citizens of cultural, national, and global communities.”

“A stellar group of scholars offer potent insights into the kinds of research questions that emerge from global migration. The strength of this volume is that it looks at immigration across a number of nation-states and integrates the migration question into issues related to teaching and learning, as well as teacher preparation.”

“Using examples and case studies from different nations, this visionary book highlights research, theory, and practices that can be used to help all students become effective and engaged citizens.”
