Special Interest Group: Multicultural Education
The purpose of the Multicultural Education SIG is to establish, within the organizational structure of the Association of Teacher Educators, an ongoing forum dedicated to the generation, dissemination, and critique of scholarship that informs curricular and pedagogical thought, practice, and policy in relation to social justice in teacher education. Our scope encompasses K-12 schools, undergraduate and graduate programs, and community agencies. Multicultural education is interpreted as advocating for equity across, and at the intersections of, race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, spirituality, exceptionality, nationality, immigrant/refugee status, and language.
