Personal background[edit]

Christine E. Sleeter was born in 1948 in Oregon. In 1970, she graduated from Willamette University with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science. In 1972, she attended Central Washington University, where she studied Secondary Education and earned a second Bachelor's degree. In 1977, she earned a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Seattle University. Teaching in Seattle, Washington prompted her initial interest in multicultural education and the position of Caucasian people in the field. Her work as a learning disabilities teacher formed a position about the construction of disability within social contexts. In 1981, she earned a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.[citation needed]
