Position Statement on Multicultural Education.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
One of the major educational responsibilities of schools in the United States is that of preparing individuals for effective participation in a complex, multicultural society. This position paper establishes a framework within which the means for developing multicultural interaction and understanding can take place. The Policy and Position Statements rest on the premise that schools in a multicultural society must also be multicultural in their policies, organization, and curricula. In order to implement this policy, all segments of the community must be involved, including educational agencies and their governing boards, principals, teachers, counselors and support staff, curriculum administrators, librarians, post secondary institutions, parents, and students.
