Engaging Multicultural Education

Engaging Multicultural Education

Safety in Sameness or Drawing Out Difference?

(p.47) Chapter Two Engaging Multicultural Education
Educated in Whiteness

Angelina E. Castagno

University of Minnesota Press

Chapter Two examines the ways teachers at Birch and Spruce understood and engaged multicultural education as either “powerblind sameness” or “colorblind difference.” Although these framing concepts appear to be logically inconsistent with one another, educators ascribed to both simultaneously. These two frameworks of sameness and difference serve as a dual system of support for whiteness.
