Multicultural Tensions in England, France and Canada: Contrasting Approaches and Consequences
Gereluk, Dianne; Race, Richard
International Studies in Sociology of Education, v17 n1-2 p113-129 Jun 2007
This article considers multicultural education policies in relation to recent political and social events in England, France and Canada. The authors start from the assumption that the promotion of multiculturalism is thought to be a beneficial aim in schools. In light of this, they contrast this aim with the large civil unrest witnessed in 2005 in England and France, along with a recent 2006 court decision in Canada regarding minority rights in schools. They contend that effective multicultural policies must be developed at both the state and local levels, otherwise multicultural education policies will remain superficial at best.
