Australian Approaches to Multicultural Education.
Shafer, Susanne M.
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v4 n6 p415-35 1983
Provisions for multicultural education in Australia include expanded ESL and foreign language offerings, various bilingual and bicultural curriculum projects for ethnic schools, and revamping of social studies programs to educate all students and teachers about Australia's ethnic minorities. While such programs should enhance mutual respect and encourage immigrant self-esteem, the problem of weakening national unity remains unresolved. (SL)
