How this integration is reached? According to Muñoz Sedano, is necessary to understand the cultural diversitu; increasing communication between people from different cultures, creating positive attitudes toward cultural diversity, and improving social interaction among cultural groups. But it is only possible with: -The agreement of the center: It requires the joint action of all teachers and also they have to put this attitude into practice by creating a microculture where pupils experience all rules, values,
As educators we have to be familiar with this in order to create equal education opportunities for everyone. While multiculturalism is valid everywhere, multicultural education beings in schools, which ultimately reflect the community and society as well. To simplify multicultural education, Banks split it into five dimensions, which are Content Integration, Knowledge Construction, Equity Pedagogy, Prejudice Reduction, and Empowering School Culture and Social Structure. All these dimensions combine to create a more harmonious society (Banks & Banks, 1997). The overall goal of multiculturalism and multicultural education is to create educational opportunities for students from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds while encouraging students from those diverse groups to create a respectful and civil community that works for everyone.
10, 2013). The philosophy and the mission of an inclusive school provide a strong foundation and confidence for practitioners to go further in advocating for every child’s right. Providing equal opportunity does not mean treating everyone the same, but rather giving every child the right to a broad and balanced curriculum with high expectation of their success. Inclusive practice involves the whole teaching community coming together to agree, identify and understand the barriers that exist so that planning for inclusion and intervention strategies can be put into place. Aside from building positive relationships with and for children, Connolly et al.
It is a symbol of respect for all of humanity. It can be argued that inclusive education is about social justice and equity and takes into account learner’s abilities, potential and diverse needs. The learner does not have to adapt to the social system. The school or the education system has to change in order to meet the learning needs of all children in a given community (Kisanji 1999; Armstrong 2005). In other words, inclusion involves restructuring the cultures, policies and practices in schools so that they respond to the diversity of students in their locality (Booth and Ainscow 2002).
Further, CIE encourages student 's activity and development. The education explores learners ' creativity and initiative, which encourages growth and development. Amity Global School is 'alma mater ' whose aim is not just to provide education, but to nurture wisdom in the thoughts of our student. With apparent understanding of the sort of education which is required for students to grapple the world in today 's era, our sole determination is to create a future generation who adores the similarities and respect the
The functionalist perspective is that there are important lessons that are being taught in schools that are above and beyond reading, writing and arithmetic. These lessons are the ones that help society function as a smooth entity and enable society to prosper. The intended lessons, or manifest functions, are cultural transmission of values, social integration, social placement, and replacing some necessary family functions due to the changing times (Henslin 2013). The conflict theorist sees the darker side of the education system when it comes to these exact ideals that the functionalists find positive. The conflict theorist sees that the social system is continuing the inequality via the cultural transmission of values and social integration.
As stated by McBrien and Brandt in The Language of Learning: A guide to Education Terms, “A multicultural education helps students to understand and relate to cultural, ethnic, and other diversity. Multicultural education should be a process to work together and to celebrate differences, not to be separated by them” (Leistyna, 2002). Because a multicultural education exposes students to cross cultural beliefs and practices, it works to make sure each individual will have a better understanding to respect different cultures, which in turn reduces negative prejudices and stereotypes (Levy, Rosenthal & Herrera-Alcazar, 2010). By teaching diverse traditions and perspectives, questioning stereotypes, and recognizing the contributions of all groups
“Good education should have both a societal purpose and purpose for the individual student” (Dewey Chapter 12). Once we have a theory of experience, then as educators, we can organize our subject matter progressively in a way that it takes account of students ' past experiences, and then provides them with experiences which will help to open up, rather than shut down, a person 's access to future growth experiences, thereby expanding the person 's likely contribution to society. Thinking and experience go hand-in-hand and they are interdependent. They work together as two parts of a process. Experience is not an object known, but rather an action performed.
It is all about proud about families and themselves, justice, the knowledge that when human being together can make difference, voice out the rights and each of the child have equal opportunity. As the world now is dominant by different culture families. Thus, implication for implementing anti-bias education is a must. Regarding to the discussion above, it is clear that early childhood educators need more training opportunities, anti-bias knowledge and skills that meet the needs of early childhood education for anti-bias education. For example the workshop or symposium that related to anti-bias programs.
It is important to the society that students should learn and acquire the necessary knowledge and skills that will in turn make them contribute positively to the development of the general economy of any nation. It is important for the institutions to maintain well balanced academic environment conducive for better learning, with the focus on the students’ personal needs. Students have different expectations, goals, and values that they want to fulfill, which is only possible if the students’ expectations, goals, and values are integrated with that of the institution (Goodman,
