Bridging Liberalism and Multiculturalism in American Education

What should the civic purposes of education be in a liberal and diverse society? Is there a tension between cultivating citizenship and respecting social diversity? What are the boundaries of parental and state authority over education? Linking political theory with educational history and policy, Rob Reich offers provocative new answers to these questions. He develops a liberal theory of multicultural education in which the leading goal is the cultivation of individual autonomy in children. Reich draws out the policy implications of his theory through one of the first sustained considerations of homeschooling in American education. He also evaluates three of the most prominent trends in contemporary school reform-vouchers, charter schools, and the small school movement-and provides pedagogical recommendations that challenge the reigning wisdom of many multicultural educators. Bridging Liberalism and Multiculturalism in American Education will be of interest to political theorists, philosophers, educators, educational policymakers, and teachers.
