Disproportionately high percentages of minority school-aged children score below basic proficiency in reading and math, have lower than average high school graduation rates, and have higher than normal rates of behavioral problems. Although there is excellent research on how to combat these problems, the research has not been discussed, distilled, or disseminated in a practical, useful way for school psychologists. This book, written by an expert in the field of multicultural school psychology, will provide comprehensive coverage of the research showing what is effective when working with African-American, Hispanic, Native American, and other diverse students. Coverage of curriculum and instruction, testing and assessment, discipline and behavior management, special education, and the home and family environment is included. In addition, legal and ethical issues related to working with minority students will be interwoven throughout.
