Description

Multicultural education is a construct that has been very useful for many years in harboring sensitivities teachers need in addressing diverse students. Now the discipline needs refreshing. In the global society the idea of multicultural education, a decidedly western formation, needs to expand its' conceptual boundaries. Salient issues in multicultural education such as individual identities, social justice and equity are bedrock concerns of multicultural educators. In this proposed book these concepts are considered necessary but not sufficient in shaping an evolving model of multicultural education. The complexity of humans and modern and emerging societies requires a broadened scope of our understanding of contemporary multicultural theory and practice.

The field of MC Education is in need of a refresh - the scholarship supporting MC Education is predominately from western scholars and classroom application of this MC scholarship is weakening and may not be wholly transferable to non - Western communities. This book provides an opportuning for emerging scholarship addressing MC Education from a comprehensive viewpoint. A perspective that acknowledges the historical benefit of MC education and also recognizing a need to inform the discipline with broader viewpoints.
