Ethnic Diversity: Framework for Analysis of Curriculum Assumptions; or, Ethnic Diversity: A Close, Hard Look at Curricular Assumptions.
Garcia, Ricardo L.
This speech outlines the programs, practices, and policies of public education that help or hamper ethnic diversification of curriculum. It also examines curriculum assumptions from which the programs, practices, and policies have emerged. Studies are utilized as a support base throughout the speech with references presented at the end. While the author concludes that the content of an ethnically diverse program should pervade the entire curriculum, he stresses that the prior sin of exclusion should not be compounded by the sin of careless inclusion. Generalizations about any ethnic group and stereotypes, the author states, are not to be desired. Implications about teacher education pervade the speech. A 10-item bibliography is included.
