At a Crossroads of Civilizations: Multicultural Educational Provision in Cyprus through the Lens of a Case Study
Panayiotopoulos, Christos; Nicolaidou, Maria
Intercultural Education, v18 n1 p65-79 Mar 2007
This paper aims to explore the issue of multicultural education in Cyprus and how it is treated within school environments. It explores attitudes from and towards non-indigenous pupils and perceptions that exist within the indigenous population. A case study approach was used to achieve these goals. Teachers completed a semi-structured questionnaire, and pupils and parents were interviewed. The results revealed serious deficiencies in the system, with particular emphasis on the lack of academic and psychological support for non-indigenous pupils. The results also point to a lack of skills among teachers to function in multiethnic classrooms. (Contains 1 table and 2 notes.)
