"Other Kinds of Families will enlarge your sense of humanity, encourage you to rethink the meaning and importance of our most intimate relationships, and change forever the way you see families—everyone else’s and your own."
That’s what school reform activist and University of Illinois Distinguished Professor of Education William Ayers says about the new book edited by teacher education professor Tammy Turner-Vorbeck. Turner-Vorbeck and co-editor Monica Miller Marsh contend that the vast diversity found in schools and society today suggests an urgent need to reconsider the ways in which families are currently represented and addressed in school curriculum and culture. Other Kinds of Families: Embracing Diversity in Schools is published by Teacher’s College Press.
