Final Report of the Work Group on Multicultural Programs.
Toronto Board of Education (Ontario).
Findings on multicultural educational programs in Canada are presented. The final report provides details of the work group's activities from April 1974 to February 1976, including public meetings, public hearings, and consultations with educators and government officials from Vancouver, Winnipeg, and Montreal. The contents are divided into two major categories: general consultations and implementation and followup recommendations. The first category presents five major sections and specifies recommendations relevant to each section. The five sections are The New Canadian, Multiculturalism and Education, System Sensitivity, School-Community Relations, and The Responsibilities and Role of Senior Governments. The implementation and followup category includes four appendices: Statement by the Chairman of the Work Group, List of Hearings and Submissions to the Work Group, References, and School-Community Relations Department Progress Report. In addition, a "Special Support Document on the Relationship Between the Social Work and School-Community Relations Departments" is presented. The work group concludes that multicultural education must be a basis of the Canadian school system if differences and commonalities of the Canadian population are to be appreciated and, further, that such education must be directed to all students and teachers.
