Concepts in Multicultural and Intergroup Relations Education.
This paper outlines basic objectives for multicultural and intergroup relations education at the elementary level. The reduction of stereotypic and prejudicial thinking and overt discriminatory behavior on the part of both children and teachers is presented as the overall goal. Several specific objectives listed focus on self concept, ethnic awareness, and participation in educational and social life. The paper then discusses the process of multicultural education and the benefits it can provide for both students and society. (APM)
