Challenging Multiculturalism: Is It Right for "Everyone"?
Mohan, Erica
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v10 n1 p7-13 2007
Given the rate at which North American classrooms are becoming increasingly diverse, this case lays the groundwork for urgently needed conversations among all preservice and practicing school administrators. The case prompts students to consider the shortcomings of standard multicultural approaches, particularly as they relate to multiethnic students, and to develop meaningful and constructive alternatives for addressing the educational experiences of minority students. Far from merely depicting a short-lived dilemma faced by the school's principal, this case presents the evolving and ongoing complexity of enacting school reforms in the face of competing interests and further complicates existing debates surrounding multicultural education.
