Draft Report of the Work Group on Multicultural Programs.
Toronto Board of Education (Ontario).
This report investigates the educational philosophy programs related to the multicultural population of Toronto. Two fundamental goals for the Toronto Board of Education are to provide equal educational opportunities to all children, and to do so without loss of the child's personal identity and cultural integrity. The work force provides recommendations on eight issues related to multicultural, multiracial education including (1) English as a second language, (2) educational opportunity differences, (3) maintenance of original cultures and languages; (4) instruction in a third language, (5) multiculturalism and the general curriculum, (6) system sensitivity, (7) community-school relations and the multicultural society, and (8) the responsibilities and role of national government in funding multicultural programs. Included in the appendices are reports and research by the work force that led to the specific recommendations. (Author/DE)
