The phrase "multicultural education" is used by a wide variety of educators and researchers in an equally wide variety of ways. In this article, Christine Sleeter and Carl Grant review literature which claims "multicultural education" as its subject; they argue that much of the existing literature addresses only limited aspects of multicultural education. The authors have developed a taxonomy by which to define the term, examine how it is used, and criticize various approaches for their shortcomings and oversights. This framework is particularly helpful for educators who are concerned with articulating issues of multicultural education,whether their concerns focus on advocacy for, or implementation of, education that is truly"multicultural."
