Recognizing the responsibility institutions have to prepare teachers for today's diverse classrooms, Vavrus shows us how to incorporate transformative multicultural education into teacher education curriculum, pedagogy, and evaluation. Placing race, racism, antiracism, and democracy at the center of his analyses and recommendation, this volume provides: - Concrete structural suggestions for including transformative multicultural education in higher education and K-12 in-service programs. -A multicultural critique of new NCATE accreditation standards for teacher education programs that offers reconceptualized assessment procedures. -The historical roots of transformative multicultural education that incorporates issues of white privilege and racialized color blindness, anti-racist pedagogy, racial identity among teachers, and critical race theory. - A discussion of globalization that emphasizes its contemporary economic effects on social and educatonal inequities.


Michael Vavrus is a past president of the Association of Independent Liberal Arts Colleges for Teacher Education and a past president of the Washington state chapter of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education. He is now teaching fulltime at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.
