Intercultural Education and School Improvement.
Williamson-Ige, Dorothy K.
This paper proposes integrating "Intercultural Education" as a fundamental part of the overall school curriculum. Intercultural Education implies positive interactions between heterogeneous citizens including those with gender differences, handicaps, race differences, and socioeconomic differences. The basic philosophy of Intercultural Education simultaneously recognizes similarities and respects differences. It is based on the premise that, if individuals are truly accepted for their own worth and more time and resources are placed on human effort, the problems of education in America would most likely decrease. An outline is given of how Intercultural Education may be brought into and implemeted within the existing school curriculum in elementary through higher education. Teaching strategies are described for effectively achieving the goals of Intercultural Education. (JD)
