Multicultural Education.
Randall, Robert S.
The concept of multicultural education is discussed along with implications for accepting and fostering cultural differences. The concept of cultural pluralism must be broadened to include a commitment to the right to be different if the full benefits of multicultural education are to be realized. A wide range of qualities can be included in multicultural education programs, but the core concept should always include an avoidance of stereotyping ethnic and cultural groups, use of many ethnic groups in pictorial representations, and teacher recognition and encouragement of individual and group differences. Benefits of multicultural education for young children include self-concept development, development of self-confidence, creation of good feelings about themselves and others, and mastery of learning activities from differing backgrounds. Teachers should encourage follow-through and follow-up activities and discussions with the children. (Author/DB)
