Future educators must be aware of educational experiences that will challenge deeply rooted assumptions about communities different from their own and achieve an understanding of the realities of other peoples' lives. Since many educators misinterpret the social, racial, and political problems they see, and as a result, blame the minority and poverty-stricken students for not effectively adjusting to the norms and expectations of the educational system, the authors of THE COLOR OF BUREAUCRACY takes an inquiry, practice-driven approach to understanding multicultural issues. The text immerses the reader in social, cultural, and political problems through case studies told from multiple perspectives and presents strategies for effective intervention unlike any other multicultural textbook. Captivating case studies provide a vehicle for actively engaging students in interpreting, understanding, and responding to complex problems of practice. Opportunities for self-reflection and self-discovery are presented throughout and help future teachers see how they view their own roles and responsibilities and guides the development of their professional identities conducive to understanding multiple communities within the school.

It offers insights on which theories are appropriate within the area of critical educational policy research and how theory and method interact and are applied in critical policy analyses. Highlighting how different critical theoretical frameworks are used in educational policy research to reshape and redefine the way scholars approach the field, the volume offers work by emerging and senior scholars in the field of educational policy who apply critical frameworks to their research. The chapters examine a wide range of current educational policy topics through different critical theoretical lenses, including critical race theory, critical discourse analysis, postmodernism, feminist poststructuralism, critical theories related to LGBTQ issues, and advocacy approaches.

"The major goal of this book is to take a comprehensive look at research, policy, and effective practices in U.S. schools for students who are from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. The demographic predictions are that students with close connections to their bilingual/bicultural heritages (now labeled 'language minority students' by the federal government) will be very large in number in the near future, becoming the majority in many states over the next three decades. Thus we educators urgently need to provide appropriate, meaningful, and effective schooling for these students, who too often have been underserved by U.S. schools. This book speaks to all educators, with the goal of providing rich examples of effective practices and their underlying research knowledge base" (page xiii).

Educators and social researchers spend considerable time and effort studying issues in multicultural/bilingual education, but have few opportunities to experience the subjective realities of the students themselves, this book compares these realities to a variety of viewpoints offered by high school teachers on matters of community, learning, race, culture, and school politics. The book transports aspiring teachers and others interested in race relations, educational sociology and anthropology, and Latino/Chicano studies into the daily school life of Latino high school students, revealing their feelings and often startling insights into the processes of American schooling. The book reveals shortcomings in the American educational system but offers new paths and paradigms for effective change. Sections of the text that highlight transcribed student interviews make it particularly useful as a reference for research and writing about multicultural education. For aspiring teachers and anyone interested in multicultural and multiethnic education.
