Envisioning Multicultural Education Development in U.S. Islamic Schools in Light of Reviewed Literature
El-Atwani, Kadriye
Multicultural Perspectives, v17 n3 p145-151 2015
The purpose of this article is first to provide a literature review that informs the race, class, and ethnic diversity among Muslims in the United States; then to show how this literature review may acknowledge developing multicultural education in Islamic schools in the United States. In the direction of these aims, the author reviews the literature that demonstrates the diversity of the U.S. Muslim community from various research fields such as sociology, anthropology, politics, and education. In the second part, El-Atwani provides a literature review about Islamic schools in the United States. In the final part of this article, the author uses James Bank's multicultural dimensions of education as a framework to enlighten a preliminary discussion about developing multicultural education in Islamic schools in the United States.
