Multicultural Education refers to the incorporation of diverse cultures into classrooms, shaping the curriculum to integrate a variety of perspectives and experiences. Teachers and staff in schools must become knowledgeable about the history, culture, and the contributions of diverse groups in order to pass that knowledge on to students. Lastly, multicultural education serves as a tool in confronting social issues related to race, ethnicity, gender, etc.
This guide is intended for college students, faculty, K-12 teachers, and other educators interested in promoting both a multicultural outlook and a multicultural education in the K-12 classroom.
