Abstract

This text offers a holistic review of the book Transforming Schooling for Second Language Learners, edited by Mariana Pacheco, P. Zitlali Morales, and Colleen Hamilton. The book is divided into four sections: Theoretical Insights, Transformative Policies, Transformative Pedagogies, and Transformative Practices. The reviewers have endeavored to create a review that follows this format, which highlights particular chapters and instances that caught their attention in light of current multilingual education, pedagogy, policy, and theory in the United States. Opinions and insights regarding the narratives and examples are included throughout. The conclusion focuses on the strengths, values, and potential purposes of this book.
