Education: Special Topics: Books

Definition

Multicultural education is associated with concepts of diversity, inclusiveness, equity and pluralism. It often comprises rights and equality issues, particularly as they relate to cultural, religious, racial, ethnic, social, linguistic and gender difference, and identity. Multicultural education programs may include human rights education, cross-cultural communication, global education, development education, environmental education, peace education and feminist pedagogy.
