Bilingual, Multilingual, and Multicultural Education | Education
In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
As an agent of societal and individual growth, schools play an important role in the community, and multiculturalism plays an important role in the schools. Many researchers agree that there is a need to include multicultural values and concepts in the classroom in order to benefit all students. Many researchers in the past few years have addressed the following issues regarding multicultural education and this literature review will focus on these same questions:
- What is multicultural education?
- How can multiculturalism be promoted in the classroom?
- Who should be exposed to multiculturalism and why?
- Why do teachers avoid using multicultural practices?
