Curriculum Development for a Multicultural Society: Policy and Curriculum. An FEU View.
Further Education Unit, London (England).
This document collects examples of policies of local education agencies (LEAs), colleges, and others in the area of multicultural education. Guidelines are also presented for those who haven't fully generated and applied policy in this area. Chapter One is an introduction. Chapter Two contains a checklist of questions to enable others to test the assumption that a multicultural society is an important issue for further education. Three broad headings of questions are equal opportunities, multicultural issues, and issues of racism. The questions are cross-referenced with Chapter Three, which offers a series of examples of college and LEA policies, with extracts from documents. Chapter Four contains some preliminary examples of college practice from two different multicultural settings. Main points from surveys of black communities about local further education provision are presented. Appendixes include a listing of documents on education in a multicultural society, a brief summary of the sources of evidence related to education in a multicultural society and to the effects of racism in society, a glossary of terminology in multicultural education, and information on Further Education Unit activity.
