Experiencing Diversity Toward Educational Equity by Frank Pignatelli

This volume provides a penetrating look at reform efforts that affirm equal opportunity yet at the same time continue to maintain structures that preserve inequity. Contributors examine ways to achieve greater educational equity and, through inquiry and exploration, offer several paths for thought and action.

Love books. Love reading. Love reading books. And, here's the trick. Here's a website which caters for people like me.

Ian Harvey-brown

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
