ABSTRACT
Multicultural education is an educational approach that integrates four factors that encourage diversity and equality into a curriculum: the instruction of students from different backgrounds, the study of ethnic and other cultural groups, the development of critical thinking skills, and a focus on human relations. Today, teaching multicultural education requires thinking critically and examining why inequalities exist in the classrooms and schools, as some students are exposed to social justice issues regarding multicultural education. Students, families, educators, and governing boards all face challenges as they grapple with multicultural education.
