New book by UW–Madison alumni examines multicultural and bilingual schools

UW–Madison alumni Matthew Knoester and Assaf Meshulam are the authors of a new book, “Learning to Cross Divides: Examining Critical Multicultural and Bilingual Schools,” that will be published by Routledge in July.

Both Knoester and Meshulam earned their doctorates from the School of Education’s Department of Curriculum and Instruction. Knoester graduated in 2010, and Meshulam in 2011. 

According to the publisher’s description, the book “demonstrates how multilingual schooling can enhance democracy through a connection with the policies and practices of critical education.”

The description continues: “With its in-depth analysis of real schools that focus on the dual emphases of multiculturalism and integration, this book examines what a truly critical multicultural and bilingual education means and what is required of those who are intimately connected with these processes. As such, it will be important reading for those studying, teaching, or researching in Sociology of Education, Multicultural Education, Multilingual and Bilingual Education, Educational Policy, and Critical Education Studies.”
