Multicultural Education in Teacher Preparation Programs: A Political or an Educational Concept?
Garcia, Jesus; Pugh, Sharon L.
Phi Delta Kappan, v74 n3 p214-19 Nov 1992
Currently, multiculturalism in teacher education is too political to be effective. Multiculturalism lacks the general support of faculty perceiving it as minority-related concern. Nonminority faculty avoid race and diversity issues and feel uncomfortable teaching in these areas. Preservice teachers are not internalizing multiculturalism principles, and insufficient pressures exist to prepare teachers, despite changing school demographics and timeless democratic ideals. (MLH)
