Education for All: A Landmark for Pluralism.
Verma, Gajendar K., Ed.
Studies of multicultural education in Australia, Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom are presented to make the argument that multicultural education must be for all children, not only those in minority groups. These 14 papers were collected by the Committee of Enquiry into the Education of Children from Ethnic Minority Groups established in 1979 by the British government. They are the following: (1) "Education for All: A Landmark in Pluralism" (Gajendra K. Verma); (2) "Equality of Opportunity, Multiculturalism, Anti-Racism and Education for All" (John Rex); (3) "The Origins of the Ethnocentric Curriculum" (Sally Tomlinson); (4) "Education for All: Social Reconstruction or Status Quo?" (Millicent E. Poole; Judyth M. Sachs); (5) "The Pluralist Dilemma Revisited" (Brian M. Bullivant); (6) "Education for All: A Canadian Dimension" (Christopher Bagley); (7) "International Interdependence: Swann's Contribution" (James Lynch); (8) "Teacher Education in a Multicultural Society" (Maurice Craft); (9) "Ignorance, Not Hostility: Student Teachers' Perceptions of Ethnic Minorities in Britain" (Louis Cohen); (10) "A New Planet?: Tackling Racial Inequality in All-White Schools and Colleges" (Barry Troyna); (11) "Warner and Swann: Similarities and Differences" (Peter Mittler); (12) "Research in a Plural Society: Pitfalls and Possibilities" (James Cornford); (13) "The Hermeneutics of the Swann Report" (Bhikhu Parekh); and (14) "Postscript--Cultural Pluralism: Strategies for Change" (Gajendra K. Verma). A foreword (Shirley Williams), an index, and information about the contributors are also included. (Author/VM)
