What's Really Said in the Teachers' Lounge
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.
