Minority Religious Practices: The Need for Awareness and Knowledge.
Ribak-Rosenthal, Nina; Kane, Connie M.
Counseling and Values, v43 n2 p142-52 Jan 1999
Study was conducted to investigate whether educators have knowledge regarding various religious groups. Results indicated few educators possess knowledge of minority religious holidays, religious prohibitions and restrictions, and identities of prophets and founders of these religions. Educators who had completed a multicultural-education course did not produce significant differences when compared with educators who had not. Recommendations for acquisition of knowledge, techniques, and strategies are included. (Author/GCP)
