What's Really Said in the Teachers' Lounge
Provocative Ideas About Cultures and Classrooms



May 1997 | 200 pages | Corwin
Jeffrey A Kottler states that multiculturalism has become so politically correct that authentic feelings and honest opinions are reserved and limited to the teachers' lounge. What is described as sensitivity to diversity is often transformed into a degree of caution in which people no longer say what they really think. In this book, Kottler presents an honest, intimate and provocative look at issues related to culture, and suggests ways in which teachers can make their classroom more vibrant and culturally responsive.
