Education in the United States will need to become significantly more multicultural if it is to meet the needs of its student base, according to reported statistics and results of studies. Such curriculum changes will be required for children at all educational levels, from those in general classes to those in exceptional or gifted programs. This paper presents a literature review on the subject.
From the Paper:"Studies report a number of other reasons in addition to population changes that will make diverse education mandatory. A number of reports show that a multicultural curriculum can increase academic relevance for students of color, attitudes in ethnic group interrelationships and degree of creative learning for everyone. Other benefits for students may include greater intellectual involvement, more advanced thinking, enhanced intellectual and academic skill building, better cross-racial socialization (Bowen and Bok, 1998), and more preparation for living in a culturally rich and democratic country."
