Reinforcing the American Fabric.
Hitz, Randy; Schmidt, Joan
American School Board Journal, v183 n8 p45,55 Aug 1996
Three factors explain the current opposition to multicultural education: (1) a reaction to the views of those who follow a doctrine of particularism that encourages children to seek their primary identity in the cultures of their ancestors; (2) a misunderstanding of the nature of culture itself; and (3) the fact that society's tolerance does not extend to some subcultures and types of diversity.
