Summary
"Explores how teachers perceive students from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds and the unintended consequences of a kind of 'colorblind multiculturalism.' She unearths a hierarchy of acceptance and legitimacy that excludes most poor Black students and favors certain immigrant minorities. In addition, Randolph discovers how some teachers distinguish their support for certain forms of student diversity from curriculum diversity, such as accommodating bilingual education"--Publisher description
