Multicultural Programming in one State

A couple of years ago, I was asked to serve as an expert witness in the court case Martinez v. New Mexico. The case itself is quite extensive and complicated. My portion of the work focused on multicultural programming. Specifically, I analyzed 1) empirical research on practices and impacts of multicultural education on students, 2) New Mexico’s statutory and regulatory requirements, and 3) multicultural programmings and offerings in the 7 school districts in which parents suing the state lived.

The case is still active, but my report can now be shared. You can download the report by clicking on this link on the page you’ll be taken to: Sleeter report. For educators in New Mexico, my report includes a good deal of useful information. For educators elsewhere, the first section is definitely useful, and the third section might be useful.
