Defining Multicultural Education
  • No two definitions will be the same
  • Constant transformation, refocusing,
    re-conceptualization in theory and practice
  • Shift in curriculum (new/diverse material)
  • Classroom climate issues
  • Teaching styles (focus on certain groups)
  • Institutional/systematic issues (tests, funding)
  • Larger societal transformation (status quo)

11
Quote
  • As long as we continue to operate within the
    existing capitalist social relations of the
    larger society, there is good reason to believe
    that racism and social injustice will continue to
    pose a serious threat to democracy and that the
    dream of social equality will remain largely
    unrealized.
  • Ovando and McLaren

12
A Working Definition
  • According to Paul C. Gorski
  • Progressive approach for transforming education
    that holistically critiques and addresses current
    shortcomings, failings and discriminatory
    practices in education.
  • Social Justice
  • Education Equality
  • Dedicated to full potential of ALL students

13
Quote
  • The child becomes largely what it is taught
    hence we must watch what we teach it, and how we
    live before it.
  • -Jane Addams
