Inclusion in a Multicultural Nation: Realities through Case Studies
Balakrishnan, Vishalache
Journal on School Educational Technology, v11 n2 p43-47 Sep-Nov 2015
According to Inclusion Press International, inclusion is not just a "disability issue" but about living full lives, about learning to live together and treasuring diversity and building community. When Malaysia obtained her independence from Britain in 1957, one of the main ruling was all three ethnicities (Malay, Chinese, and Indian) should live together as one multicultural nation. No individual should be excluded from any aspects of Education, Economic and Social means. After almost six decades of independence, many individuals in Malaysia are still unhappy with the social injustice due to exclusion based on several factors such as ethnicity and historical roots. In this paper the researcher would like to argue that, the minority ethnic group have been side lined due to constitutional rights and current policies. Using multiple case studies and collecting date through technology such as Facebook, Whats App and e-mail, the researcher used textual analysis to analyse the data collected. Findings show that, the participants have to fend for themselves and the social injustice caused many to leave their country of birth to move to other countries where they are treated equally for what they are and not who they are. The researcher suggests that, there is a critical need for Malaysia to overlook its Political, Economic and Education policies to ensure a new world which is just and fair.
