International Journal of Multicultural Education (IJME) is a peer-reviewed open-access journal for scholars, practitioners, and students of multicultural education. Committed to promoting educational equity for diverse students, cross-cultural understanding, and global justice for marginalized people in all levels of education, including leadership and policies, IJME publishes three types of articles: (1) empirical research reports that explicitly address multicultural educational issues and typically engages qualitative research methods in robust manners (if specified in the call for submissions, some special issues may accept quantitative studies); (2) conceptual and theoretical articles, typically grounded on in-depth literature review, which advance theories and scholarship of multicultural education; and (3) praxis articles that discuss successful multicultural education practices grounded on sound theories and literature. We particularly encourage submissions resulted from meaningful and ethical collaboration among international scholars and practitioners. Submissions that advance from prescreening will be subject to originality-testing and double-blind review.
Puerto Rican officials appropriately criticized the Trump administration for its slow and inadequate response to the disaster that has left much of the island without electricity, clean water, fuel, food and safe housing. The mayor of the capital city of Puerto Rico said earlier that the Trump administration was “killing us with inefficiency and bureaucracy” after Hurricane Maria slammed Puerto Rico on Sept. 20 right behind Hurricane Irma on Sept. 6, which passed to the north doing significant damage to the island. She labeled Trump’s visit a public relations stunt and called him the “ miscommunicator in chief .” She continued, “This terrible and abominable view of him throwing paper towels and throwing provisions at people, it does not embody the spirit of the American nation,” Cruz said after Trump’s visit. “That is not the land of ‘the free and the home of the brave,’ that beacon of democracy that people have learned to look up to across the world.”
