The Bias of Culture: An Issue Paper on Multiculturalism. Revised.
Toronto Board of Education (Ontario).
The two purposes of this issues paper are to provide a brief description of the educational programs the Toronto Board of Education offers for both the children and the adults of the entire multiethnic community and to set out the general, but critical, relationship of the school system with the city's ethnic communities. The paper outlines various categories, or types, of issues into which personal and direct concerns resulting from personal experiences of the individual ethnic student or family may be placed. Ten issues, seen as dimensions of the problem as it exists in its pragmatic and contemporary form, rather than as fundamental causes of the problem as a whole, are (1) cultural identity, (2) streaming, (3) reception and placement, (4) ascription, (5) teachers' and school principals' perceptions, (6) extra Anglo-Canadian ethnic groups' perceptions, (7) schools' contacts with extra Anglo-Canadian ethnic communities, (8) school system's support services, (9) extra Anglo-Canadian ethnic teachers, and (10) ghetto-ization.
