Cultural Diversity and Its Effect on Education.
Though the existence of a culturally pluralistic society has long been recognized in the United States, demographic trends will force new attitudes toward coping with a larger minority school population. Unless U.S. educators prepare to understand culturally pluralistic student bodies, the result will be an economy dependent on an under-educated or miseducated work force. The United States has a unique opportunity to capitalize on its diversity, but its educators must first view this diversity as an asset. Through training, educators can restructure their attitudes and methodologies to better interact with and motivate both minority and non-minority students. A 21-item bibliography is included.
