The increasing ethnic, racial, cultural, religious, and language diversity in nations throughout the world is forcing educators and policymakers to rethink existing notions of citizenship and nationality. To experience cultural democracy and freedom, a nation must be unified around a set of democratic values such as justice and equality that balance unity and diversity and protect the rights of diverse groups. Diversity and Citizenship Education: Global Perspectives brings together in one comprehensive volume a group of international experts on the topic of diversity and citizenship education. These experts discuss and identify the shared issues and possibilities that exist when educating for national unity and cultural diversity. Diversity and Citizenship Education: Global Perspectives presents compelling case studies and examples of successful programs and practices from twelve nations, discusses problems that arise when societies are highly stratified along race, cultural, and class lines, and describes guidelines and benchmarks that practicing educators can use to structure citizenship education programs that balance unity and diversity. The book covers a broad range of issues and includes vital information on such topics as Migration, citizenship, and education The challenge of racialized citizenship in the United States The contribution of the struggles by Indians and Blacks for citizenship and recognition in Brazil Crises of citizenship education and ethnic issues in Germany, Russia, and South Africa Conflicts between religious and ethnic factions Diversity, globalization, and democratic education

8 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The document contains 14 articles focusing on multiethnic education. The objective is to help teachers and other educators attain the insights and conceptual understanding needed to prepare students to function effectively within the world community. Multiethnic education is defined as the process used by educational institutions to reform their environments so that students from diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds will experience educational equity. Chapters one and two define the nature of multiethnic education and measure the distance between societal and school curricula. Chapter three provides insights into the planning necessary for teacher preparation. Chapters four and five describe the conflict between the home cultures of the students and the culture of the school and focus on viewing ethnic identities and group behaviors as positive sources of strength. Chapter six describes the conflict between the learning styles of ethnic students and those favored by the school. Chapter seven discusses language diversity while chapter eight emphasizes awareness as the way to become an effective cross-cultural counselor. Chapters nine and ten suggest alternatives to traditional testing and explain goals and characteristics of the multiethnic curriculum. Chapter eleven describes one program, while chapter twelve focuses on school-community cooperation. The final two chapters discuss traditional assumptions about schooling and suggest guidelines for training teachers. An afterword highlights key points and proposes needed actions. (Ck)
