Multi-Cultural Non-Sexist Curriculum Guidelines for Iowa Schools.
Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines.
The Iowa State Board of Public Instruction recognizes its duty to aid in the provision of multicultural education stated in these guidelines. The purpose of the guidelines is to provide guidance and assistance to local school districts in the development and implementation of multicultural education programs. The board urges the cooperation of all school boards in the state in the implementation of these guidelines by following the procedures and standards set forth. The administrative principles specified in this document reflect the concern shown by the Iowa State Legislature and the Iowa State Board of Public Instruction that the curriculum in Iowa schools reflect the cultural diversity of the nation. Iowa legislators have also shown concern for the role that schools play in the socialization of children, including the way students view themselves and those around them. This concern is manifested by five statements in the Iowa code. (Author/JM)
