Manitoba Dept. of Education and Training, Winnipeg.
This publication presents the official multicultural education policy statement for Manitoba (Canada) institutions of education and training. The policy is guided by the following three principles: (1) education for full participation in society; (2) education for cultural and linguistic development; and (3) education for intercultural understanding. An introduction describes the adoption of the policy for a multiculutural society by the Government of Manitoba in 1990 and the implications for all branches of government and education. A section on the policy statement describes the three main thrusts of the policy. Another section outlines objectives that will transmit the general policy statement for implementation. A section on multicultural education lists initiatives of Manitoba Education and Training that assist the implementation of the policy. Also listed are tasks for school division, initiatives for postsecondary institutions, and initiatives for ethnocultural communities. A conclusion lists four companion documents to support implementation of the policy. (JB)
