From the Paper:

"The Multicultural, educational approach celebrates the cultural diversity of contemporary society. Its basic premise is that by exposing all children to the social and cultural customs of ethnic minority communities living in their country, they will have a greater understanding and tolerance of people from different backgrounds. The concept of multiculturalism in schools is part of a continuing debate about how to address the inequalities among different ethnic groups that exist in the education system, as well as how to engender tolerance and understanding between them. In the last decades of the 20th century, British educational theorists have been split between multiculturalism and anti-racism, the latter being a more direct challenge to racist structures in society. However, the controversy is seen to arise when the students learn about their culture but lack the necessary education in aspects of society that would allow them to become assimilated in America. Thus, the debate rages on whether multiculturalism is needed or not."
