Applying Multiculturalism: The Resolution of a Problem(atic) Situation.
Locke, Don C.
The role of schools in the development of good citizenship has been well established. This role has expanded to include the incorporation of the cultural differences of students. In order to meet this requirement there must be a strong commitment from the leadership of an educational system to the education of all students. Particular attention should be paid to culturally non-dominant students. Educators must also understand that they are responsible for teaching the values of the culture. The system must ensure those individuals willing to implement change are supported in their efforts. Recommendations are presented for what individual schools can do to meet these multicultural objectives. Eleven guiding principles are reviewed that serve as a philosophy for increasing multicultural understanding. (JDM)
