On Epochal Mission of Multicultural Education in a Perspective of Globalization
Chen, Shi-jian
Frontiers of Education in China, v1 n3 p339-349 Sep 2006
The development of modern societies accelerates the process of globalization, which in turn brings about a conspicuous diversity of cultures. Cultural difference and cultural diversity are characteristics of multiculturalism, which commits itself to the construction of favorable educational climates for multiple cultures. Such a progression has facilitated the development of education in a democratic and diverse way. Multicultural education develops rapidly and should undertake the new mission in the globalization era. In the perspective of globalization, multicultural education must aim at developing students' ability to adapt to a multicultural world. It should promote a combined growth of culture and world peace.
