Theoretical Perspectives on American Indian Education introduces four prominent theoretical perspectives on American Indian education: cultural discontinuity theory, structural inequality, interactionalist theory, and transculturation theory. By including readings that each feature a theoretical perspective, Huffman provides a comparison of each perspective's basic premise, fundamental assumptions regarding American Indian education, implications, and associated criticisms. Bringing together treatments on a variety of theories into one work, this book integrates current scholarship and discussions for researchers, students, and professionals involved in American Indian education.
