RACE AND ETHNICITY IN MULTIETHNIC SCHOOLS 
A Critical Case Study
James Ryan (The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education)

DESCRIPTION
This book explores the representation of race/ethnicity in a multiethnic
school. Employing a critical case study approach, it appeals to the
wider social context to explain the unequal struggle over the meaning of
race and ethnicity in the school. In doing so it examines how
stereotyping, curriculum, identity and language practices provide
advantages for some and penalize others. The book also provides
suggestions for how educators might find ways to introduce discourses
that make it possible for traditionally marginalized students and
members of the community to have their voices heard and to shape
meanings that work in their interests.

CONTENTS 
1. Representing Race and Ethnicity in a Multiethnic School
2. Education, Diversity and Representation 
3. Representation, Meaning and Discourse
4. Difference, Race and Racism 
5. Stereotypical Representations 
6. Representations of Race/Ethnicity in Curriculum Resources 
7. Representing Oneself: Student Communication and Student Identity
8. Valuing Languages 
9. Struggling for Discursive Equality: Contesting Discourses and Finding
Voices 

AUTHOR INFORMATION

Policy Studies at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the
