Immigrant Students as a Resource, Multicultural Education, and Preparedness for Peace. Peace Education Miniprints No. 59.
This report suggests that immigrants and immigrant students have been considered and discussed as problems during political discourse and in educational circles rather than devoting energy to regarding immigrant students as a resource in international and peace issues and in ethnic relations. Part 1 provides a background discussion on what can be done to enhance the view of immigrant students as resources and focuses on concepts like "preparedness for peace" and "multicultural education." Part 2 includes examples of the viewpoints of 24 experts who have been interviewed on how students who represent a variety of nationalities and cultural backgrounds in a school can aid in peace education. Part 3 offers an extensive bibliography on materials related to multicultural education. Contains over 200 references. (CK)
