Garden City: Multicultural Issues in Adult Education
Martinez, Hector; Bolton, Debra J.
Educational Considerations, v35 n1 p36-40 Fall 2007
To succeed in the new adult education environment, students from all racial and ethnic groups need to experience and master a variety of challenges in and out of the classroom. In this study, multiculturalism is viewed as the process of increasing awareness of and knowledge about human diversity in ways that are translated into respectful human interactions and effective interconnections. The purpose of this study is to bring to light multicultural issues at the Garden City Adult Education program. In general terms, some of the most frequent challenges, concerns, and issues for the participants are the language, the financial burdens that they have to confront on a daily basis, and their new social status--different from the one they had in their community of origin. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
