Brilliant! The first of its kind and long overdue Oct. 30 2014
By Davey Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
CRiSE provides a cutting edge reification of racial/ethnic issues in special education by providing examples and evidence of cultural clashes. Harry's opening anecdote is a slam dunk way of exemplifying the culture inherent in special education language and the cost of not belonging. The authors and the contributors provide fantastic hands-on processes for developing cultural competence in self and others. In a future or supplementary edition, this reviewer is hoping for some condensed presentation of cultural considerations by groups of people--along with the requisite precautions against over-generalizing.
