A widely known internet newspaper called the Huff Post shares a shocking wake-up call to America as it exposes the grim realities experienced by the country’s public schools. Explaining how the education system hardly exposes students to lessons on cultural diversity and gender equality, the post sends a loud and clear message about how the society endangers kids to ignorance on racism, sexism and discrimination issues. In line with this, the book titled “Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Children” reveals the realities of the education system and its implications on minority children. Written by Jerri A. Haynes, this compelling study paves way to a broader and in-depth understanding of the realistic scenario of minority children’s academic learning.
The United States is home of many multicultural and multilingual groups which, sad to say, receives the least educational assistance. The population of failing children multiplied during the past twenty-five years, hence increasing the number of children who do not meet the academic reading, writing, and math content standards. The United States issued a No Child Left Behind Act 2001 legislation, which required all students to read on grade level. Nevertheless, many school districts do not meet this requirement due to lack of knowledge and respecting children with cultural and language differences.
“Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Children” incites cultural and language understanding about the learning struggles of minority students and how the government can improve the curriculum, instruction and assessments in school districts, with economic, language and cultural diversities in mind. Hence, this book serves as the voice and the opportunity to elucidate the obscured issues that have been plaguing the education system.
A boon to all students, parents, educators, faculty members, school administrative bodies and government leaders, “Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Children” will unquestionably inspire and create a significant change in the society, for Haynes believes that the success of the future relies on the quality of education which every student deserves.
