Achieving a True Multicultural Focus in Today's Curriculum.
Carpenter, Karen D.
NASSP Bulletin, v78 n566 p62-67 Dec 1994
Academic multiculturalism, an emerging educational trend, is a one-dimensional approach that adds a list of admirable persons of color to the existing curriculum. Political multiculturalism opens the curriculum to analysis and reconstruction of historical power struggles, including the social conditions and inequitable power relations behind historical events. Principals can help the United States develop the multicultural scholars it desperately needs. (MLH)
